Return to contents

The Utah Department of Health is pleased to present the Utah Nutrition and Physical Activity Plan 2010 to 2020. The Plan is the result of a statewide collaborative effort to identify strategies to promote healthy eating options and physical activity opportunities to prevent overweight, obesity, and related chronic diseases across the lifespan.

This Plan describes goals and strategies that will be implemented where Utahns live, work, and play. A variety of different approaches are included in the plan. Some address policy issues and environmental barriers, others encourage businesses and organizations to encourage individual behavior changes. The strategies also include educating the public on the need and benefits of healthy lifestyles choices.
