US: The Community Guide – Systematic reviews on obesity

The US Taskforce On Community Preventive Services reviews the evidence on the effectiveness of population-based health interventions. It publishes the evidence in one-page summaries – ‘The Community Guide’.

In June it published a guide on school-based interventions. This found:
