We believe there is no one simple answer or fix – what will work to reverse this growing trend of obesity is a range of programs designed to be used in a variety of settings – schools, worksites, homes, doctor’s offices and more. Programs that are creative, yet simple to use, and programs that are available free of charge, so everyone can use them.
