Thanks to Communities Putting Prevention to Work funding, the Cincinnati Public School system has already implemented new guidelines for foods and beverages sold in school vending machines, a la carte lines and school stores, ensuring that they meet nutrition standards that place limits on calories, certain nutrients and portion size. That's 34,000 children eating healthier, in one city alone. Next up will be helping make sure kids have access to thirty minutes of exercise a day in their after school programs, and helping schools, local YMCAs and churches open up their playgrounds and facilities to neighbors looking for safe places to exercise (and in a county where one out of five third graders are overweight).
