The health and well-being of children should be the responsibility not only of their parents or guardians, but of the entire community. Children live, learn, and play in varied environments: school, public libraries, eating establishments, and afterschool programs. Each, whether inadvertently or by design, may help to shape their eating and physical activity behaviors, thereby affecting their health.
It is therefore important to build relationships with key people in all these environments, who can help parent advocates pursue their goals of making healthful nutrition changes in their children's lives. This section will guide you to identify those stakeholders, learn how they interact with one another, and find ways to connect with them.
