Chicagoans feeding dollars into park vending machines are buying granola bars and dried fruit instead of mini donuts and cheesy potato chips — and they’re not complaining, according to a study by Northwestern University researchers released today.

Does your community have safe places for kids to play?

Do all #kids have safe places to be #active? Children living in poor or predominantly minority neighborhoods are less likely to have clean, safe, and attractive places to be physically active. They are also at higher risk for #obesity, overweight, and related health problems. This #infographic features evidence on some of the barriers these kids face in being able to #walk, #bike, or play in their schools and neighborhoods. #disparities

What is your community doing to improve physical activity?

What is your community doing to improve physical activity?

#Communities across the nation are doing more to ensure that streets, sidewalks, schools, and parks support walking, biking, and playing. This #infographic highlights several studies which evaluated changes in physical activity after the implementation of built environment and programmatic modifications in different cities. For example, children are more likely to #walk or #bike to school when there are quality #streets and #crosswalks, and programs that promote safety; existence of #bikelanes is related to higher rates of cycling; and the presence of recreational facilities close to home encourages more #physicalactivity.
