Research on Childhood Obesity
Investing in research is the cornerstone of RWJF’s approach for reversing the childhood obesity epidemic. Our grantees are examining which strategies have the greatest potential to promote healthy eating and physical activity among children. This work covers everything from how marketing influences children's food and beverage choices, to how communities can help kids be active, to the impact of school foods on students' health.
Some of our latest research is listed below, but you can also search to find exactly what you're looking for.
