New Orleans launches fitness campaign

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - New Orleans officials have launched a new physical fitness campaign for the city.

It's called the Fit NOLA partnership. The 36-page plan was released Tuesday by Mayor Mitch Landrieu's office. It will include public awareness campaigns to spread information about good nutrition and exercise. It's also designed to increase residents' access to affordable nutritious food. And it includes plans to provide more opportunities for children and families to be physically active by repairing more sidewalks and streetlights and adding bike lanes and parks.

The mayor's office says Landrieu also issued an executive order to implement a standard for healthier foods and beverages sold at city-owned parks and facilities.
