Out-of-school interventions for engaging youth in healthy eating and physical activity: A systematic review

Amanda Kari Ackerman, The University of Texas School of Public Health

Abstract

Over the past three decades, obesity rates have skyrocketed, especially for children. As the prevalence of obesity continues to rise, age-appropriate interventions to increase child health are critical. With larger demands placed on schools, alternative venues, such as the out-of-school time, holds a considerable promise for increasing physical activity levels, healthy eating behavior and self-efficacy in children.^
