Healthy Eating Research (HER) is a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) national program, which supports research on policy, systems, and environmental (PSE) strategies with strong potential to promote the health and well-being of children at a population level. HER grantmaking focuses on children and adolescents from birth to 18, and their families, with a priority on lower-income and racial and ethnic minority populations that are at-risk of poor nutrition and obesity. Findings are expected to advance RWJF's efforts to ensure that all children and their families have the opportunity and resources to experience the best physical, social, and emotional health possible, promote health equity, and build a Culture of Health. Applications are due July 18, 2018.

California continues to address disparities in its obesity rates, in part, by implementing Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program – Education (SNAP-Ed) activities that help create and expand healthy environments through policy, systems, and environmental change and provide evidence-based nutrition education and physical activity promotion efforts. To support this work in the early care and education setting, the Nutrition Education and Obesity Prevention Branch (NEOPB) of the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), in partnership with the California State University, Chico Center for Healthy Communities, created the Early Care and Education Physical Activity Toolkit for Preschool-Aged Children (ECE PA Toolkit).
