Imagine a world where families can walk or bike an urban trail to a safe, well-maintained public park where they can play and exercise on outdoor fitness equipment. Where our elders can board a bus for the short ride to the city center where they can access many of the necessary amenities. Cities’ planning, zoning, and infrastructure investment can not only have a positive effect on health but can also foster community and keep some of our most vulnerable populations engaged, active and healthy from ages 8 to 80. What will they do about it?
Access to healthy food is an important tool in obesity prevention. By providing citizens with healthy. affordable, easily accessable alternatives to foods with high caloric content and little nutritional value cities can lead by example in the fight against obesity. Cities have powerful planning, economic development, and public relations tools for attracting and supporting healthy food retailers, farmer’s markets and community gardens. Are they ready to take action?
