The Wisconsin Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity State Plan was developed by the Wisconsin Partnership for Activity and Nutrition (WI PAN) and the Wisconsin Nutrition, Physical Activity and Obesity Program. The State Plan provides a framework or blueprint of evidence-based strategies and best practices for improving nutrition, increasing physical activity and reducing obesity in Wisconsin. The Plan is targeted to those involved in planning, coordinating, implementing and evaluating interventions or initiatives to address obesity in Wisconsin. The focus of the State Plan is to create environments where children are able to be breastfed for at least the first year of life, where people have access to safe, affordable and nutritious foods and beverages, where they are able to be physically active as part of their daily routine, and to be deliberate in adapting strategies to reduce health disparities. In essence, making the healthy choice easier. WAND is meeting to review the plan, and recommend areas to help support the new statewide plan. We welcome your comments and suggestions as we determine the best way for WAND to help support the plan.
