It can be tempting to jump straight into action. Kids are overweight? Let's offer lower-fat school lunches! Organize soccer games after school! Tell parents to offer more fruits and vegetables! But if your action doesn't address the root causes of the problem, your intervention is likely to have little effect, particularly in the long term.

Now that you have done this groundwork, you're ready to develop your action plan.
The steps presented here will help guide you and your collaboration partners as you develop an action plan.
