Three Years of Healthy Eating and Physical Activity in Parks and Recreation

Over the past three years, park and recreation agencies have committed to implementing a set of healthy eating and physical activity standards at their OST sites. Through implementation of these standards, more than 1,270 park and recreation sites have provided increased access to healthy foods and new opportunities for physical activity for over 228,000 youth. While the impact numbers alone are impressive, there are many reasons to celebrate this initiative—new partnerships have been created, new resources have been developed, and the vision of getting families across the country to eat healthy and move more is quickly becoming a reality.
