Leading Healthy Indicators for CATCH
About CATCH and the Healthy People 2020 Leading Health Indicators
CATCH (Coordinated Approach To Child Health) is a school-based health program designed to promote physical
activity and healthy food choices. CATCH transforms a child’s environment, culture, and society by coordinating
child health efforts across all aspects of the educational experience: classroom, food services, physical education, and
family.
Healthy People 2020 provides a comprehensive set of 10-year, national goals and objectives for improving the
health of all Americans. Healthy People 2020 contains 42 topic areas with more than 1,200 objectives. A smaller set of
Healthy People 2020 objectives, called Leading Health Indicators, has been selected to communicate high-priority
health issues and actions that can be taken to address them. CATCH provides a comprehensive and coordinated
framework to address many of these key Leading Health Indicators from Healthy People 2020.
CATCH can help increase the quantity and quality of kids’ daily physical activity
•	 CATCH promotes the formation of school wellness teams along with a review of existing opportunities for
physical activity (PA). New opportunities for PA can include classroom activity breaks and “open gym” policies
before and after school.
•	 Daily high-quality physical education (PE) is one approach for increasing PA during the school day. CATCH
provides quality PE trainings that have been documented to increase the amount of time children engage in
moderate-to-vigorous PA during PE class.
•	 CATCH helps to increase PA during recess time
through provision of structured CATCH Kids Club
activities and the Active Play-Active Learning project,
which uses fun playground markings to encourage PA.
CATCH teaches kids and parents the importance of
daily physical activity
•	 CATCH classroom curriculum includes lessons on
how kids can reduce sedentary behaviors, like screen
time, and engineer physical activity into their daily
lives and routines.
•	 Regular Family Fun Nights provide opportunities to
drive CATCH messages and lessons home to parents.
•	 CATCH uses social marketing campaigns to
increase message retention as well as the appeal of
engaging in healthy behaviors.
RELEVANT LEADING HEALTH INDICATORS
FOR PHYSICAL ACTIVITY ADRESSED BY
CATCH
PA-3: Increase the proportion of adolescents who
meet current Federal physical activity guidelines for
aerobic physical activity and for muscle-strengthening
activity.
PA-4: Increase the proportion of the Nation’s public
and private schools that require daily physical
education for all students.
PA-5: Increase the proportion of adolescents who
participate in daily school physical education.
PA-6: Increase regularly scheduled elementary school
recess in the United States.
PA-7: Increase the proportion of school districts that
require or recommend elementary school recess for an
appropriate period of time.
PA-8: Increase the proportion of children and
adolescents who do not exceed recommended limits
for screen time.
CATCH can help to transform the school environment to support healthier food choices
•	 The CATCH Eat Smart school nutrition program includes guidelines and tips for modifying school meals and
can be implemented in school cafeterias as well as central food service operations. The primary goal of Eat Smart
is to provide children with tasty healthy school meals while maintaining required levels of essential nutrients and
student participation.
•	 The GO, SLOW, and WHOA food categorization is a simple method developed by the CATCH research team and
tested as a tool to help children and their families choose healthier food options everyday. The goal is to eat more
GO foods than SLOW foods and more SLOW foods than WHOA foods.
•	 CATCH promotes the formation of school wellness teams along with a review of existing nutrition policies.
Opportunities for improving the school food environment can include healthy vending machine nutrition standards
and operating hours, alternatives to junk food or candy fund-raisers, and nutrition guidelines for foods provided at
school events.
CATCH teaches kids and parents the importance of
eating healthfully every day
•	 CATCH classroom curriculum includes lessons on
identifying GO, SLOW, and WHOA foods as well as the
benefits of making healthy food and beverage choices
and consequences of an unhealthy diet.
•	 Regular Family Fun Nights provide opportunities to
drive CATCH messages and lessons home to parents.
•	 CATCH utilizes social marketing campaigns to
promote water consumption and GO, SLOW, WHOA
messaging to increase exposure to and understandng
of nutrition lessons as well as the appeal of healthy
food and beverage choices.
