Child Nutrition and Obesity Prevention Resources

August 16, 2011

nutrition, physical development and obesity are serious health and
development issues.  NAEYC has standards for nutrition and health in our
early childhood program accreditation system and we work with
coalitions on child nutrition program quality and funding.  In 2010,
NAEYC was pleased to receive a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson
Foundation to elevate the issue of childhood obesity prevention and to
work with our network of experts, as well as state and local Affiliates
to provide resources to advocates and early childhood programs as they
undertake this work. Below is a compilation of a variety of resources
that we hope will prove useful both at the program level and in planning
childhood obesity prevention efforts.
