Preventing Childhood Obesity

Share
Posted May 9, 2018

The Preventing Childhood Obesity Challenge will award $375,000 in prizes to support the creation of low-cost, scalable tech innovations to promote healthy weight for children and families within the context of their communities.

The challenge is one component of a four-part Grand Challenge program coordinated by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau, part of the Health Resources & Services Administration.

Potential areas of focus include, but are not limited to:

  • Promoting access to healthy, affordable food;
  • Supporting community-owned solutions that increase families’ knowledge and skills related to healthy eating and nutrition;
  • Finding innovative ways that increase physical activity, such as gamification, while accounting for environmental barriers to physical activity in underserved communities; and
  • Empowering families to achieve healthy eating practices, healthy lifestyles, and sustainable changes in the home environment, while accounting for limited access to healthy foods in under-resourced communities.
