Sample Price-Related Activities
Reduce monetary cost of products (lower costs of healthy items in
vending machines, subsidize costs of fruits and vegetables, reduce cost of
after-school programs that provide physical activity).
- Reduce non-monetary costs (provide exercise classes at work, provide
childcare at activities, provide easy and convenient transportation to and
from activities, make fruits and vegetables available nearby).
- Increase cost of competitive products (add tax to soft drinks, increase
costs of unhealthy items in workplace cafeteria, establish a fine for
daycares showing more than a limited amount of TV).
- Make the desired behavior easier to do (provide a treadmill in the
workplace; have healthy options in the snack machine).
- Advocate for policy changes that reduce barriers (add sidewalks to
neighborhoods to make walking easier, pay for increased security at
community parks, flexible schedules to allow for physical activity in
work sites, remove free formula and take home bags from maternity floors).
