Food Environment

Reducing obesity and other chronic diseases in Indiana will depend on the efforts of local communities. Health can be affected by the places in a community where one lives, works, learns and plays.

The Indiana Healthy Weight Initiative provides information on laws and policies and other resources to facilitate change to food and eating environments that support good nutrition.

There are opportunities in Indiana to begin and expand upon existing activities to create healthy food and eating environments for all residents.
