This chapter outlines the Whole School Approach and how it may be implemented in schools for preventing childhood obesity. The Framework encompasses three major areas of intervention in the school and community: 1) school curriculum, teaching, and learning; 2) school ethos, environment, and organization; and 3) school-community partnerships and services. It presents strategies for implementing the framework for obesity prevention with a ‘First, do no harm’ proviso, followed by a summary of government sponsored obesity prevention intervention programs in schools between 2000 and 2010.
