Fuel for Fun: Cooking with Kids Plus Parents and Play is an integrated research, extension, education project targeting 4th-grade students. Its long-term goal of reducing the risk of childhood obesity will be addressed by promoting healthful food and activity environments, policies and behaviors through: 1) evaluating the efficacy of a 4th grade comprehensive school-based intervention, 2) designing, implementing, and evaluating a family-based intervention, 3) applying it to an after-school setting to broaden its reach, and, 4) disseminating both versions through outreach
