Making it easier to eat well, be physically active, and maintain a healthy weight
Eating well and watching your weight take more than just willpower. We need programs and policies that make healthy food more available, that disclose the calorie content of restaurant foods, and that teach people how to make healthy eating easier. There are existing nutrition policies and programs, like Nutrition Facts labels on packaged foods, nutrition standards for school lunches, and regulation of food additives. But more needs to be done to help people who want to eat well and prevent diet-related disease.
- Implement Nutrition Labeling on Menus/Menu Boards at Restaurants
- Decrease Marketing of Low-Nutrition Foods to Children

Vending, a la carte, fundraisers, snacks, rewards, parties, etc.
- Provide Healthier Food Choices for Public Places
