"In light of the obesity and diabetes epidemics, efforts to promote healthy lifestyles are critically needed. Building a strong future starts today."

Policy in Action
With a Community Grant from the California Obesity Prevention Program, the CSU Chico, Center for Nutrition & Promotion (CNAP) partnered with Preschools in Butte County to enhance physical activity opportunities for low income children. CNAP worked with 4 agencies serving over 300 children to adopt the recommendations from Preventing Childhood Obesity in Early Care and Education Programs (2010). Together they developed, adopted, and implemented policies that support outlined standards to address opportunities for physical activity, playing outdoors, caregivers/teachers’ encouragement of physical activity and policies and practices that promote physical activity.
