New Toolkits: Food Marketing, Safe Routes to School and Shared Use


Over the past few weeks, the American Heart Association has released three new toolkits on food marketing in schools, Safe Routes to School and shared use that offer a compilation of facts, sample materials and guidance on how to build, engage, and mobilize a movement in your state or community around critical issues. The newly released toolkits are:

  • Don’t Sell Us Short: In this toolkit, you will find tactics to eliminate unhealthy food and beverage marketing in schools and on buses so that kids can develop healthy food preferences and habits to last a lifetime.
  • Look Both Ways: In this toolkit, you will find tactics to help children in your community live safer, more physically active lives and, more specifically, to help you advocate that states effectively utilize federal funding available for Safe Routes to School projects.
  • Unlock the Doors: This toolkit consists of incentives and monitoring strategies for promoting shared use.
