Exploring the USDA Child Nutrition Act of 2004 through a healthy, active children policy in North Carolina

The Foundation's Active Living Research program was designed to support investigator-initiated research to identify and assess structural, environmental, and policy changes with the potential to increase population levels of physical activity.This grant provides supplemental funds for a study originally funded under the Foundation's Healthy Eating Research program in its Round 1 funding focusing on school nutrition policies in North Carolina for elementary and middle school kids. This supplemental grant will add to the Round 1 grant by including a macro and micro level policy analysis of the North Carolina Healthy Active Children and USDA wellness policy implementation. Data on school physical activity policies will be collected using a Web-based survey and key informant interviews.
