CDC’s Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity works to maintain health and prevent chronic disease by promoting healthy eating and active living for Americans of all ages.  We work with state and local partners on community solutions to help increase healthy food choices and connect people to places and opportunities where they can be regularly active.
