Childhood Obesity Prevention Strategies for Rural Communities Toolkit
Rural communities, due to special characteristics unique to the rural environment, are especially vulnerable to childhood obesity. To combat these high rates, Nemours has released “Childhood Obesity Prevention Strategies for Rural Communities”, a toolkit for childhood practitioners outlining specific strategies for promoting healthy, nutritional practices. Along with science-informed prevention strategies, this resource also features policy recommendations and an overview of the evaluation process.
