Fundamental Agreements for Action Planning

Childhood Obesity Prevention (Healthy Weight and Healthy Lifestyle) Requires:

  • Sustained efforts in research and intervention. Phased efforts may provide more meaningful results and change.
  • Community-based multidimensional efforts of share responsibility.
  • High-quality interventions that achieve impacts receive more visibility and resources for replication.
  • Professional preparation at all levels, formal, informal, and continuing education; emphasize the need for a research/practitioner model to effectively deal with this issue.
  • The Land-Grant University System and its partners to identify gaps in research, education, and extension efforts and reorient priorities to these areas.
