Promoting Healthy Eating Habits and Physical Activity in Preschool

Chico Community Children’s Center is partnering up with CSUC Center for Nutrition and Activity Promotion. One goal is to help prevent obesity through the implementation of policy and environmental change strategies of the local or state obesity prevention plan, with the hopes to adopt physical activity policies to enhance quality and quantity of physical activity instruction, increase opportunities for physical activity and create environmental changes to promote activity.

              
We also will be working with children and parents on gaining knowledge about nutrition, and making healthy eating choices. Children will increase awareness and understanding of their physical activity and gain skills to enhance physical activity and making healthy eating choices. Different recipe ideas that include seasonal fruits and vegetables, handouts with the importance of healthy eating for children and different ideas on how to get children to be active at home will be available to the parents.
