The purpose of the Children's Healthy Weight Collaborative Improvement and Innovation Network (CHW-CoIIN) is to partner with and support states in adopting evidence-based or evidence-informed policies and practices related to nutrition, physical activity, and breastfeeding, with the goal of increasing the proportion of children and young adults ages 0 to 21 years, including those with special health care needs, who fall within a healthy weight range. The CHW-CoIIN acts as a catalyst for programmatic and systems-level change, supporting implementation of the Title V Block Grant transformation by strengthening states' efforts to address the National Performance Measures (NPMs) related to nutrition, physical activity and breastfeeding.
