Our children are the future of Kentucky. That's why we are working with early care and education centers and schools to address the childhood obesity epidemic.
In national rankings, Kentucky is in the top 10 most obese states across all ages.
We focus our efforts on improving access to healthy foods and physical activity, preventing obesity in early care and education (ECE) settings and schools, and improving overall wellness in worksites.
We have compiled a library of documents, toolkits and websites that will be useful for anyone interested in Kentucky’s obesity efforts.
Obesity is everyone's issue.
That's why we look at every possible opportunity for prevention. We want to support healthy eating and physical activity in child care centers, schools, hospitals, worksites and communities by looking at the environment, systems, and policies that shape Kentucky's future.
