SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On June 23, 2010, the President established Executive Order 13545 to amend Executive Order 13265, dated June 6, 2002. Under Executive Order 13545, direction is given for the scope of the President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports to be expanded to recognize that good nutrition goes hand in hand with fitness and sports participation. Executive Order 13545 gives authority for the title of the Council to be revised to include nutrition. The new title is President's Council on Fitness, Sports, and Nutrition (PCFSN).

The primary functions of the PCFSN include (1) advising the President, through the Secretary, concerning progress made in carrying out the provisions of Executive Order 13545 and shall recommend to the President, through the Secretary, actions to accelerate progress; (2) advising the Secretary on ways to promote regular physical activity, fitness, sports participation, and good nutrition. Recommendations may address, but are not necessarily limited to, public awareness campaigns; Federal, State, and local physical activity; fitness, sports participation, and nutrition initiatives; and partnership opportunities between public- and private-sector health promotion entities; (3) functioning as a liaison to relevant State, local, and private entities in order to advise the Secretary regarding opportunities to extend and improve physical activity, fitness, sports, and nutrition programs and services at the local, State, and national levels; and (4) monitoring the need to enhance programs and educational and promotional materials sponsored, overseen, or disseminated by the Council, and shall advise the Secretary, as necessary, concerning such need. In performing its functions, the Council shall take into account the Federal Dietary Guidelines for Americans and the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans.

The PCFSN will hold, at a minimum, one meeting in a calendar year. The meeting will be held to (1) assess ongoing Council activities and (2) discuss and plan future projects and programs.
