Olympics & MN - How to promote healthy lifestyles?

The Olympics provide ample examples for young people to engage in fun, healthy activities. Hopefully it will serve as an inspiration to all of us. For a generation now, we’ve dismissed the childhood obesity epidemic, blaming it on lazy kids and video games. Meanwhile, budgets and NCLB have some of our schools phasing out non-high profile sports, cutting physical education and limiting recess. Because of all the forces mentioned above, policymakers and health advocates must get involved.

What policies will promote healthy lifestyles that young people can carry into adulthood? Which Olympic events inspire you to live more healthfully?
