["Government, industry, communities, schools, and families have developed many initiatives to respond to the growing problem of childhood obesity, but efforts remain fragmented. Moreover, most of the policies and programs are not being evaluated, making it difficult to identify effective interventions. National leadership on this public health issue is also lacking... The good news is that Americans have begun to recognize that childhood obesity is a serious public health problem, and initiatives to address it are under way."]
