NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Legislative leaders and several groups are launching a new initiative to encourage healthy eating in Tennessee.

A news conference is scheduled at the state Capitol on Tuesday to announce the plan.

Officials say the long-term goal of the initiative will be to provide an appropriate forum to find solutions to creating healthier lifestyles.

Tennessee currently ranks among the highest in the nation for obesity, diabetes, stroke and heart disease.

The news conference coincides with "Ag Day on the Hill," an annual legislative event to promote the state's farm products.
