Nebraska State Plan
The Nebraska Physical Activity and Nutrition State Plan, originally released in 2005, has been recently revised. The purpose of the State Plan is to decrease the prevalence of obesity and chronic diseases related to inactivity and poor nutrition.
The revised State Plan is designed to help organizations and individuals address overweight and obesity in their communities by creating policies and environments supportive of healthy eating, active living, and breastfeeding. The Plan spotlights effective strategies and activities to address the six Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) nutrition and physical activity priority goals in five settings: communities, worksites, schools, healthcare, and childcare facilities.

In addition to the written document, the State Plan is available at www.partnersnhealth.org
