Did you know that many states lack appropriate standards to help inform the activities and nutrition of children in early care and education programs, like daycares and pre-schools? This is a problem for the 60% of children that spend time in these programs.
Luckily, things don’t have to stay this way.
Parents and providers agree that children five years of age and under benefit from healthy food, active play, and limited time spent behind a screen. Together, we can work to make these minimum, commonsense guidelines a reality for all kids. This will give all kids access to the building blocks of healthy habits, and set them up for lifelong health. Who wouldn’t want that?
