The opening article, "Schools Role in  the Childhood Obesity Crisis" is an extension on the information presented by the First Lady last week in the news conference announcing her "Let's Move" initiative.  We look at what schools can do to create a healthy environment which combats childhood obesity.  We are also building a set of resources for schools on the topic of childhood obesity.  We included this article in the grants newsletter as it is certain to be a gateway to future grant funding for nutrition and physical activity.

As always, we encourage you to visit the Peaceful Playgrounds Grants page of our website.
