Start Early, Start Smart

daycareTo provide children with a healthier start, we commit to help early care and education program providers to incorporate healthy nutrition and physical activities into their settings as well as decrease screen time.

With more than 25% of 2- to 5-year- children already overweight or obese in the United States, child-care providers have become essential allies in the campaign to combat childhood obesity, support healthy development and prevent chronic disease.

Let’s Move Boise has created a series of workshops based on the Color Me Healthy curriculum developed by the Blue Cross of Idaho Foundation for Health. Color Me Healthy consists of interactive lessons that teach children about eating fruits and vegetables of different colors and physical activity.
