Indiana's Obesity Prevention Plan

Return to contents

The purpose of the Indiana Obesity Prevention Plan is to provide a framework in which policy makers can work together to build, shape, and support environments that make it easier for Indiana residents to choose healthy eating and physically active patterns.

Creating healthy environments in communities across the state will: help children and adults achieve and maintain a healthy weight; slow the increase in the proportion of Indiana residents who are obese; reduce the rates and delay the onset of chronic diseases; and, improve the quality of life of Indiana residents.
