Strategic Approach for the Promotion of Healthy Weights among Children and Youth in British Columbia
Victoria Barr completed a Strategic Approach for the Promotion of Healthy Weights among Children and Youth in British Columbia in December 2012, with funding from the Childhood Obesity Foundation. This report was informed by an extensive environmental scan of current initiatives across the province and was guided by relevant research-based literature about ‘what works’ in the promotion of healthy weights among children and youth. The report presents key considerations to strengthen and guide the coordinated implementation of provincial strategies and initiatives to promote healthy weights in children and youth in BC.
