Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Recommendations
for States
  • States should
  • Develop state-specific obesity plans
  • Review programs and policies across state
    agencies to evaluate their impact on nutrition,
    physical activity, and obesity
  • Dedicate revenue to implementing obesity
    prevention and control programs

Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Recommendations
for School Districts
  • School districts should
  • Ensure physical activity is part of students
    daily lives.
  • Students should have time for activity during
    the school day, and physical education should be
    improved and requirements should be increased.
  • Agreements should be developed so recreation
    spaces at schools and community centers can be
    made available for children to use before and
    after school when possible.
