Promoting Healthy Eating and Active Living:

Healthier communities are built on local government, community institutions, schools, workplaces and healthcare settings implementing evidence-based policies and programs to create environments that foster healthy living. Below is a non-exhaustive list of linked resources that are available for schools and communities to use without having to recreate the wheel. Apply these best practices to your agency and adapt as needed.
