About This Collection
In recent years, some cities, counties, and states have started to see their childhood obesity rates go down. Places reporting declines have implemented a wide range of strategies to make healthy foods available and encourage physical activity in schools and communities. In this collection, we share these communities' unique approaches. While no single local strategy is directly linked with declining childhood obesity rates, the collective effect of their far-reaching changes may be helping to support healthier choices and behaviors among kids and families.
