A new poll reveals a disconnect between parents’ desire to make healthy decisions and reality:

How 'crunch time' between school and sleep shapes kids' health

NPR conducted a poll with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Harvard School of Public Health. It focuses on what happens in American households during the hours between school and bedtime.

This is crunch time for most families — when crucial everyday decisions get made about food and exercise.

More than 9 in 10 parents said it was important that their child eats and exercises in a way to maintain a healthy weight.

But all too often, there's a disconnect. Despite good intentions, it's not happening.

This story is the first of eight parts in the series On The Run: How Families Struggle To Eat Well And Exercise.
