Eat Well, Play More Vermont is taking on childhood obesity in Vermont. The American Heart Association is a leading member of this newly-formed coalition funded by the Y of the USA and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to focus on policy efforts to reduce childhood obesity. Our vision – Vermont is a state where all children can eat healthy food and are physically active every day. Eat Well, Play More Vermont will focus on:
- Improving nutrition in school, out-of-school, and early care and education settings
- Increasing physical activity in school, out-of-school, and early care and education settings
- Increasing access to high-quality, affordable foods through pricing strategies and availability in retail outlets
