"Let's Move! Child Care" Campaign Focused on Reducing Early Childhood Obesity; Supported by CCEI
Two years after the "Let's Move!" campaign began, First Lady Michelle Obama has now introduced the "Let's Move! Child Care" campaign focused on obesity in children two through five years of age. According to a White House Task Force, more than half of obese children are overweight by age two, and roughly one out of five children are overweight by age six. Through CHD100: Early Childhood Obesity, child care providers will learn to identify, prevent and reduce the risks of obesity in the early care environment.
