CDC Strategies To Improve Nutrition
Strategy 1. Promote food policy councils as a way to improve the food
environment at state and local levels
Strategy 2. Improve access to retail stores that sell high-quality fruits and
vegetables or increase the availability of high-quality fruits and vegetables at
retail stores in underserved communities
Strategy 3. Start or expand farm-to-institution programs in schools, hospitals,
workplaces, and other institutions
Strategy 4. Start or expand farmers’ markets in all settings
Strategy 5. Start or expand community supported agriculture programs in all
Strategy 6. Ensure access to fruits and vegetables in workplace cafeterias and

Strategy 8. Support and promote community and home gardens
Strategy 9. Establish policies to incorporate fruit and vegetable activities into
schools as a way to increase consumption
Strategy 10. Include fruits and vegetables in emergency food programs
CDC Strategies to Increase F and V
 CDC Strategies to Increase Fruit and Vegetable
Definition, rationale, evidence of effectiveness, key considerations,
program examples, action steps, and resources
 Start or expand farm-to-institution programs
Kindergarten Initiative in Pennsylvania
This program uses education, snacks from local farms, parent
involvement, and community support to promote healthy eating.
Nutrition concepts are integrated into the regular kindergarten
classroom curriculum, and healthy fruit and vegetable snacks grown
by local farmers are provided to the students.
 Ensure access to healthy fruits and vegetables in
Healthy Picks
The Healthy Picks program at the Santa Rosa Medical Center in
California is one of several programs implemented by the Kaiser
Permanente Comprehensive Food Policy. The program provides
healthier food options in the medical center’s vending machines and
cafeteria. Healthy foods are labeled with Healthy Picks stickers.
Hospital officials used detailed nutritional standards to choose the
Healthy Picks food options, which include more vegetables. A team
of nutrition and dining service professionals working at Kaiser
Permanente implemented the program.
 Establish policies to incorporate fruit and vegetable
activities into schools as a way to increase consumption
Cooking with Kids
This program engages elementary school children in hands-on
learning that uses fresh, affordable foods from diverse cultures.
Students are encouraged to use all of their senses to explore many
varieties of foods, to have fun, and to exercise choice. The curriculum
is aligned with the New Mexico Department of Education’s academic
standards in math, science, social studies, language arts, and
wellness, as well as with the National Health Education Standards.
An evaluation of the program showed that the majority of children
have shown a greater interest in eating healthy foods, including fruits
and vegetables, at home.
CDC Strategies to Increase Physical Activity
CDC Guide to Increase Physical Activity
 http://www.cdc.gov/obesity/downloads/pa_2011_web.pdf
 Point of decision prompts to encourage use of stairs
 CDC’s StairWELL to Better Health Program
 Motivational signs were placed where people have the choice between
stair and elevator use. Intervention messages were tested in focus groups
to ensure that they were motivating to the audience. In addition to using
point-of-decision prompts, CDC also enhanced the stairwell by adding
carpet and rubber treading to each step to maximize safety. The walls
were painted bright colors (each floor is a different color), and framed
artwork that features nutritious foods, picturesque scenery, and people
being active was added to each floor. The intervention also included a
contest to choose employee artwork to be hung in the stairwell. In
addition, music is provided through a digital satellite system that rotates
a variety of musical genres, including classical, country, jazz, Latin,
oldies, popular contemporary, and urban
 Enhanced school based physical education
CATCH (Coordinated Approach to Child Health)
 CATCH is a popular, evidence-based school health program. It
includes activities that can be done in and out of the
classroom, as well as home and after-school activities and a
family component. CATCH is designed to promote physical
activity and healthy food choices in children.
 The YMCA of Greater Rochester integrated the philosophy of
the CATCH program into the YMCA’s after-school child care
program. Child care staff received training from a certified
CATCH program director at the beginning of the school year,
as well as booster training throughout the year.
Community Guide to Preventive Services
 The Guide to Community Preventive Services is a free
resource to help you choose programs and policies to
improve health and prevent disease in your community
 Based on a scientific systematic review process and
answers questions critical to almost everyone interested
in community health and well-being such as:
What interventions have and have not worked?
In which populations and settings has the intervention worked or not
What might the intervention cost? What should I expect for my
Does the intervention lead to any other benefits or harms?
What interventions need more research before we know if they work
or not?
Community Guide Preventive Services
Recommended Strategies
Community Guide to Preventive Services
 Link to recommended obesity prevention strategies
 http://www.thecommunityguide.org/obesity/communitysetti
 Behavioral interventions that aim to reduce recreational (i.e.,
neither school-related nor work-related) sedentary screen
time teach behavioral self-management skills to initiate or
maintain behavior change.
 Worksite wellness - Policy and environmental approaches aim
to make healthy choices easier and target the entire workforce
by changing physical or organizational structures. Examples
of this include: Improving access to healthy foods (e.g.
changing cafeteria options, vending machine
content)Providing more opportunities to be physically active
(e.g. providing on-site facilities for exercise)
Why Should We Adapt these Strategies?
The recommended strategies have been tried and tested
to be effective in addressing obesity, physical inactivity,
and poor nutrition.
They draw on peer-reviewed literature and practice-based programs
utilizing these strategies will increase the likelihood of your
program’s success.
 There are lots of strategies to choose from, so you have
the opportunity to determine which strategy will best
work in your community.
Since the majority of these strategies are not designed to be
culturally specific for American Indian communities, you will be able
to tailor the strategy to meet your community’s needs.
