This National Institutes of Health database of obesity programs helps program planners find evidence-based programs for different settings, population groups, and community types. Examples include:

  • 5-a-Day Power Plus, a 4-component school-based intervention to increase fruit and vegetable consumption in children in grades 4 and 5
  • Building Healthy Families, which includes food and nutrition education classes — each with a 5-minute video, a weekly goal-setting sheet, and handouts and recipes — for adults ages 19 to 39
  • Children’s Health, Activity and Nutrition: Get Educated!, a school-based intervention that includes lessons on nutrition and exercise, worksheets, and homework assignments to improve children’s dietary habits and increase their physical activity.
