The Shaping Healthy Choices Program (SHCP) is a multi-component, school-based intervention, which was recently spotlighted in the University of California Agricultural and Natural Resources (ANR) UC Delivers campaign.  UC Delivers is a collection of examples showing how ANR is making a difference for Californians.

Preliminary analyses show that children classified as overweight or obese dropped from 56 percent to 38 percent during the one year SHCP was implemented in Sacramento County.  The full UC Delivers article spotlighting SHCP is available online.
