Project Energize is a programme that aims to increase children’s physical activity levels, improve their nutritional status and ultimately their overall health. The programme began at Sport Waikato in 2005, funded by the Waikato District Health Board and was established in Wellington in 2016.

Delivered by the Heart Foundation and funded by Capital Coast District Health Board, the programme enables Energizers to work with schools, teachers and parents to coordinate and deliver physical activity sessions, nutritional advice and help implement health and fitness programmes within primary schools.

Project Energize aims to increase children's physical activity, improve their nutrition and ultimately their overall health. They help to promote healthy eating, provide information on healthy eating options, assist teachers in providing varied and quality daily exercises and encourage children to choose more active play options at home.
