dc.description.abstractRising rates of pediatric obesity have caught the attention of researchers and public health officials internationally. The obesogenic environment in the United States is one contributing factor to the rise in obesity, and as such it is the target of multiple interventions and research studies. This paper provides research support for the community intervention project “Best Food for Families, Infants and Toddlers (Best Food FITS!),” a campaign that aims to improve the food environment in the city of San Marcos, Texas, by making healthier food choices more readily available in San Marcos restaurants, especially for infants and toddlers. By analyzing menus from 135 restaurants, researchers were able to establish a baseline characterization of the children’s menus in San Marcos, in order to compare them with the new children’s menus San Marcos restaurants have volunteered to implement.en_US
