Overview: Curbing Childhood Obesity A Federal, Provincial and Territorial Framework for Action to Promote Healthy Weights
A bilingual (English and French) synopsis of why the government has decided to make healthy weight in children a priority in Canada. The Federal, Provincial and Territorial governments have committed to collaborative and coordinated efforts to implement 3 key policy priorities in curbing childhood obesity, including: making the environments where children live, learn and play more supportive of physical activity and healthy eating; identifying the risk of obesity in children and addressing it early; and increasing the availability and accessibility of nutritious foods and decreasing the marketing to children of foods and beverages that are high in fat, sugar and/or sodium.
