Action Strategies Toolkit Offers Concrete Resources for Policy-Makers Working to Prevent Childhood Obesity

To provide guidance on some of the best approaches policy-makers can use to make their states, communities and schools healthier places to live, Leadership for Healthy Communities, a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, created the Action Strategies Toolkit. The toolkit offers practical examples of policy approaches and resources that can help policy-makers prevent childhood obesity and improve children’s health. It covers a wide range of issues, including increasing access to parks and recreation centers, improving safety for bicyclists and pedestrians, offering healthier foods in schools, and attracting grocery stores that provide healthy, affordable foods to lower-income communities.
