This project will evaluate an innovative intervention to change the food environment to reduce obesity risk among low-income urban African American children. Specifically, it will (a) develop, implement and evaluate a program that creates healthy eating zones around selected city schools that will increase the availability of healthy food options and promote them at the point of purchase, and (b) partner with food stores, carryout facilities, youth recreation centers and community organizations to impact children’s food-related psychosocial factors, purchases and diet, and to directly influence caregiver food purchasing.
