Please take a moment to read through these five goals

Overarching: Local elected leaders should appoint and empower a Task Force and/or designee to implement and monitor nutrition and physical activity progress in each of the Let's Move! goals. To increase the opportunities for success, the Task Force and/or designee should engage local government officials, school officials, community organizations, faith-based organizations, and interested individuals. Additionally, recognition by a local elected official is an important incentive for these groups to engage in Let's Move! activities.

Goal I: To provide children with a healthier start, local elected officials commit to helping early care and education program providers incorporate best practices for nutrition, physical activity and screen time into their programs.

Goal II: To empower parents and caregivers, local elected officials commit to prominently


displaying 'MyPlate' in all municipally- or county-owned or operated venues where food is served.

Goal III: To provide healthy food to children and youth, local elected officials commit to expanding access to meal programs before, during and after the school day, and/or over the summer months.

Goal IV: To improve access to healthy, affordable foods, local elected officials commit to implementing healthy and sustainable food service guidelines that are aligned with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans in all municipally- or county-owned or operated venues that serve food.

Goal V: To increase physical activity, local elected officials commit to mapping local playspaces, completing a needs assessment, developing an action plan, and launching a minimum of three proven policies, programs or initiatives aimed at increasing access to play.

We want to ensure that you are being recognized for your progress and achievements. In the survey, we include questions we consider model benchmarks for each goal, which correspond to bronze, silver, and gold medals. This information will be used by NLC to identify the various technical assistance needs of LMCTC sites and to provide the support needed to make progress and to celebrate success.
