Mall Walking: A Program Resource Guide

Mall Walking: A Program Resource Guide  was created by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to encourage the development of mall walking programs to help people get active in malls or other venues in areas where a mall is not available.

This Guide can be used by mall managers, who want to start or enhance a mall walking program, or for others in the community, who want to partner with their community mall to either start a walking program, or use an existing program to help their constituencies (e.g., employees, patients, seniors) walk more. This can include aging services providers, community coalitions, work site managers, public health professionals, and hospitals and health care providers. The Guide is also available in Spanish!

Dietary Guidelines for Americans

The Dietary Guidelines for Americans helps Americans make smart choices about food and physical activity so they can live healthier lives. The Guidelines focus on making small shifts in your daily eating habits to improve your health and nutrition over the long run. They also emphasize the importance of “eating patterns,” which refer to the combination of all foods and beverages a person consumes regularly over time, rather than focusing on individual nutrients or foods in isolation.

The Guidelines encourage all Americans to consume more healthy foods like vegetables, fruits, whole grains, fat-free and low-fat dairy products, lean meats, seafood, other protein foods, and oils. They also recommend limiting sodium, saturated and trans fats, and added sugars.
