Achieving a State of Healthy Weight-National Resource Center


Beginning in 2010, the National Resource Center NRC for Health and Safety in Child Care and Early Education worked within the context of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Healthy Weight Initiative Child Care Workgroup to support the national effort to prevent childhood obesity in child care and early education programs. One part of this work was a national assessment of the child care regulations in all fifty states and the District of Columbia relative to newly revised expert consensus-defined and evidence-based best practices encompassed in Preventing Childhood Obesity in Early Care and Education Programs: Selected Standards from Caring for Our Children: National Health and Safety Performance Standards; Guidelines for Early Care and Education Programs, 3rd Edition. The following reports present the findings of the annual assessments.
