Parents want what is best for their children. They want them to enjoy the benefits of healthy food, active play, and limited screen time. However, for the 60% of American children who spend time in early care and education programs, this is no guarantee.

In order to ensure that our children grow up in healthy environments, it’s clear that we need to establish clear standards that help these programs deliver what is best for our children to maintain a healthy weight and achieve lifelong health. This is where Voices for Healthy Kids comes in.

By working together with parents, caregivers, community leaders, and policy-makers, we can make sure early childcare programs provide healthy environments where kids learn to form positive habits around nutrition, physical activity, and limited screen time.

Join us today by helping us create early care and education standards that will give all kids the building blocks for a healthy life.
