Promoting Healthy Behavior in Child-Care Settings
Regular physical activity and good nutrition are critical to a child’s development. Because many children spend a significant amount of time in some form of childcare, these settings play an important role in teaching healthy eating and lifestyle habits that last well into adulthood. Adopting healthy habits early in life decreases the risk of developing serious health problems — like diabetes and heart disease — later on.
