Our goal is to create strong childhood obesity policy interventions that will reverse the epidemic by 2015.
As communities across the nation consider new policies that support physical activity and increased access to healthier foods, legal and policy research and tools will be essential.
By empowering community-based change agents with resources that are legally sound, practical and accessible, the National Policy & Legal Analysis Network to Prevent Childhood Obesity (NPLAN) plays an important role in the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's historic and ambitious effort to reverse the obesity epidemic by 2015.
Our website is packed with model policies, how-to guides, fact sheets, and other policy tools. Be sure to check out the TOOLS tab to browse or search resources organized by more specific categories.
