The National Nutrition Summit was convened by the U.S. Departments of Agriculture and Health and Human Services to identify continuing challenges and emerging opportunities for the nation in food, nutrition, and health. The Partnership to Promote Healthy Eating and Active Living also held a summit which aimed to provide a forum to broaden understanding of promoting healthy eating and physical activity, enhance interactions among disciplines and between public and private sectors, and provide direction on options to promote behavior change. In this session, representatives from federal and state government and the food industry and health advocates will explore policy options recommended at both summits to promote healthy eating and physical activity and how to translate those recommendations into action.
Learning Objectives: During this session, health advocates and representatives from federal and state government and the food industry will explore nutrition and physical activity policy options recommended at the National Nutrition Summit and the Partnership to Promote Healthy Eating and Active Living Summit. They also will discuss how to translate those recommendations into action
