To provide children with a healthier start, we commit to raising the importance of local early care and education program providers incorporating best practices for nutrition, physical activity and screen time into their programs.
To empower parents and caregivers, we commit to prominently displaying MyPlate in all municipal or county venues where food is served.
To provide healthy food in schools, we commit to increasing participation in the School Breakfast Program (SBP) and the National School Lunch Program (NSLP).
To improve access to healthy, affordable foods, we commit to implementing healthy and sustainable food service guidelines that are aligned with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans in all municipal and county venues that serve food.
To increase physical activity, we are committed to mapping local playspaces, developing an action plan, and launching a minimum of three programs or initiatives aimed at increasing access to play.
