The Challenge: Over the past few decades, many social and environmental changes have limited children’s access to safe places where they can walk, bike and play. As a result, kids are less active—and lack of physical activity is a major contributor to obesity.
Make an Impact: Policies that support walking and bicycling to school help increase daily physical activity among children.
What the findings are about: A summary of research about how walking and bicycling to school impacts kids’ physical activity levels and health. This brief also explores the factors that influence walking and biking to school, including the impact of Safe Routes to School programs.
