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.

Pricing Strategies

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.
