EDITORIAL
Reversing the Trend of Childhood Obesity

This logic model shows that, from 2006 to 2009, local and state policy changes could lead to and also result from positive changes in schools and communities. Local and state policy changes could also result from school and community leaders demanding change and from policy makers being informed and engaged. Positive changes in schools and communities could, by 2010, lead to improved nutrition and appropriate caloric intake, which together with increased physical activity could reverse the trend in childhood obesity by 2015.
