The Food and Nutrition Section of the American Public Health Association (APHA) developed a Web site on obesity in childhood. This was developed to coincide with National Public Health Week April 7-13, focusing on overweight and obesity.
The Web site is a compendium of information and links to resources, tools, and materials on the subject of overweight in childhood and adolescence that can be used to promote awareness and education, improve public health practice, and strengthen public policy. Subject links include: Advocacy and Education, APHA Overweight in Childhood Policy, Funding Resources, International Resources, Policy and Legislation, and Resources.
