Obesity Prevention and Control


Obesity Prevention Program

The Nevada Obesity Prevention and Control Program implements evidence-based strategies to create a culture of obesity prevention by changing obesity-related behaviors to curtail/reduce child and adult obesity in Nevada. 

Current statewide program efforts include:

  • promoting and increasing physical activity in Early Care and Education Centers (ECEs) and worksites; 
  • enhancing healthy eating options and standards in ECEs and worksites; 
  • developing strategies to divide and decrease sedentary time in ECEs and worksites;  
  • promoting breastfeeding support in ECEs and worksites; and 
  • collaborating with local and state partners for the promotion of key behaviors related to obesity prevention and reduction in Nevada.
