CDC Report Highlights Lack of Healthy Food Environments for Children

The 2011 Children's Food Environment State Indicator Report and National Action Guide, released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, includes data about food access, regulations and policies that may improve childhood obesity.

Policy and environmental indicators on early child care, school and community settings are included in the report, along with behavioral indicators on sugar drinks, family meals and television viewing.

CDC's Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity has released a fact sheet titled "Healthier Food Retail: Beginning the Assessment Process in Your State or Community" that provides an overview of steps that state or local public health practitioners can take to assess their retail food environment. It covers topics including:

  • Public and commercial data sources on food retail
  • Considerations when using food retail data sets
  • Geographic information system mapping
  • Working with partners
  • Assessments of in-store availability, cost and quality
  • State and community examples.
