Abstract
"Childhood Obesity and Nutrition Issues in the United States: An Update on School-based Policies and Practice" follows up on a 2005 CEEP brief on this topic. The new brief examines the latest research and statistics. Reasons for the continuing increase in obesity rates among children, and the latest federal and state initiatives to combat these causes are considered in the brief. A summary of 41 wellness policies collected from Indiana school districts is included. The brief also offers conclusions and recommendations to schools, education leaders, policymakers, and parents about how to curb the obesity epidemic.
