The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation focuses on six policy priorities that evidence suggests will have the greatest and longest-lasting impact on our children.
School Foods and Beverages
Ensure that all foods and beverages served and sold in school meet or exceed the most recent Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
Healthy Affordable Food
Increase access to high-quality, affordable foods through new or improved grocery stores and healthier corner stores and bodegas.
Physical Activity at School
Increase the time, intensity, and duration of physical activity during the school day and out-of-school programs.
Use pricing strategies—both incentives and disincentives—to promote the purchase of healthier foods.
Physical Activity in Communities
Increase physical activity by improving the built environment in communities.
Marketing to Kids
Reduce youths' exposure to the marketing of unhealthy foods through regulation, policy, and effective industry self-regulation.
