PPHF 2012: Early Childcare and Education Obesity Prevention Program Obesity Prevention in Young Chil

The overarching purpose of this program is to improve the quality of obesity prevention practices through evidence and practiced based policy, environmental, programmatic and infrastructure changes in Early Child Care settings (e.g.

child care centers, family care homes, Head Start programs, pre-schools,
etc.) and facilities.

This programs aims to achieve this by providing opportunities to ensure equitable access to ECE services that meet the national Preventing Childhood Obesity (PCO) (2nd Ed.) standard components related to nutrition, breastfeeding support, physical activity, and screen time, all of which are key areas for obesity prevention through funding an organization, to take actions that align with their mission and ongoing responsibility in partnerships with agencies and organizations in other sectors, to enhance the health of the people they serve.

This FOA seeks to include a small subset of the standard components selected and adapted to be the core goals of First Lady Michelle Obama s national Let s Move Child Care (LMCC) obesity prevention initiative and will support key evidence- and practice- based policy, environmental, programmatic and infrastructure in Early Child Care settings and facilities to achieve demonstrated progress in one or more of the following eight outcome measures:
1) Ensure trained ECE providers successfully implement PCO (2nd Ed.) obesity prevention standard components.
2) Increase the number of ECE facilities that meet the PCO (2nd Ed.) obesity prevention standard components.
3) Increase the proportion of children 0 - 5 years attending ECE facilities (by state) that meet the PCO (2nd Ed.) obesity prevention standard components.
4) Increase the proportion of mothers with infants cared for in ECE facilities who meet their breastfeeding duration goals.
5) Increase the proportion of young children who eat fruits and vegetables daily.
6) Decrease the proportion of young children who consume sugary drinks daily.
7) Increase the proportion of young children who have no more than 30 minutes per week of screen time in ECE facilities.
8) Increase the proportion of young children being provided age-appropriate physical activity time each day.
