We Are Evolving
Childhood Obesity




24% - 33% of 2 – 5 year olds are overweight or
obese.
Obesity rates for young children doubled in about
a 20 year period of time (1980’s – 2000).
Obese children are more likely to become obese
adults.
If children are overweight, obesity in adulthood is
likely to be more severe.
Education Consequences
Children who are overweight or obese can be
undernourished at the same time.

Nutrition deficiencies


`Impair brain development and cognitive functioning,
including learning
Physical inactivity
Activity promotes brain development, improves sleep, builds
self confidence, and reduces stress & depression
 Children who are not active have more behavioral and
disciplinary problems, shorter attention spans in class and do
worse in school compared to active children

You Play an Important Role in Preventing Obesity!
Moving Forward to Reverse the
Obesity Trends
“ … we know the cure for this. This isn't like
putting a man on the moon or inventing the
Internet - it doesn't take some stroke of genius or
feat of technology. ... Rarely in the history of this
country have we encountered a problem of such
magnitude and consequence that is so eminently
solvable.”
Michelle Obama

Why obesity prevention in child care and
early education programs?


You can help children build healthy habits for
life

Food preferences and physical activity habits develop
during early childhood and continue into adulthood

You are a role model. Kids do as you do, especially when
they’re young.
You are in a unique position to educate
parents about healthy eating and activity

Let’s Move! Child Care Goals
5 Goals
www.HealthyKidsHealthyFuture.org
1
Physical Activity
2
Screen Time
3
4
5
Nutrition
Provide 1-2 hours of physical activity throughout the day, including
outside play when possible.
No screen time for children under 2 years. For children age 2 and
older, strive to limit screen time to no more than 30 minutes per
week during child care, and work with parents and caregivers to
ensure children have no more than 1-2 hours of quality screen time
per day (as recommended by AAP).
Serve fruits or vegetables at every meal, eat meals family-style
whenever possible, and don't serve fried foods.
Beverages
Provide access to water during meals and throughout the day, and
don't serve sugar-sweetened drinks. For children age 2 and older,
serve low-fat (1%) or non-fat milk, and no more than one 4- to 6ounce serving of 100% juice per day.
Infant Feeding
For mothers who want to continue breastfeeding, provide their milk
to their infants and welcome them to breastfeed during the child
care day. Support all new parents' decisions about infant feeding.
Stand Up & Talk Time! (2 minutes)
www.HealthyKidsHealthyFuture.org
Turn to your neighbor and discuss which goals are
easiest or hardest to adopt in your ECE setting.
Why Offer Healthy Food?
Food (1)
www.HealthyKidsHealthyFuture.org



Helps children stay at a
healthy weight
Food preferences develop at
an early age, even in infancy
Opportunity to teach kids’
taste buds to appreciate
healthy foods
Food (2)
www.HealthyKidsHealthyFuture.org


Many healthy options cost
the same as the not-sohealthy choices (like whole
wheat bread vs. white
bread)
Many children eat most of
their daily meals and
snacks while in care,
especially children in fulltime care
Food (3)
www.HealthyKidsHealthyFuture.org
Benefits of family-style dining
 Improve skills for self-feeding and
recognition of hunger cues
 Promotes and supports social emotional,
and motor skill development
 Language skills improve as adults and
peers talk with each other
 Opportunity for positive role modeling
 Adults at the table help prevent fighting,
feeding each other, potential choking,
and other negative behaviors
Food Moves!
www.HealthyKidsHealthyFuture.org

Pretend to move like different foods
 Melt
 Pop
like a popsicle
like popcorn
 Wiggle
like spaghetti
Why Offer Healthy Drinks?
Beverages (1)
www.HealthyKidsHealthyFuture.org




Water keeps kids hydrated
best
Water helps to reduce acid in
the mouth that can cause
cavities
Sugary drinks are high in
calories and low in nutrients
Drinking water instead of
sugary drinks reduces the
amount of calories children
consume
Beverages (2)
www.HealthyKidsHealthyFuture.org


Serving fresh fruit instead of
fruit juice is best, because it is
high in dietary fiber and is a
natural source of energy
Skim or 1% milk have the same
amount of calcium and other
essential nutrients as whole milk,
but less fat and calories
Reasons for Reducing Screen Time



Gets in the way of exploring,
playing, and social interaction.
As kids get older, screen time can
get in the way of being active,
reading, doing homework, playing
with friends, and spending time
with family.
Kids who spend more time
watching TV are more likely to be
overweight or obese.
When screen time is allowed:



Make it “quality programming” by choosing shows
or computer games that are educational or get kids
moving.
Track screen time with a simple scheduling sheet so
you know how much screen time a child has and
when they’ve reached their limit for the week.
Avoid watching while eating (snacks or meals).
REMINDER: Touch screen technology does NOT count as ‘active’
screen time. Also, watch the quality of children’s movement with
active video games
Why Support Breast Feeding?
Breast Feeding (1)
www.HealthyKidsHealthyFuture.org

Breast milk helps to:
 Prevent
obesity
 Defend against infections
(keeping infants from getting
sick with things like diarrhea
and ear infections)
 Protect against a number of
conditions — like asthma,
diabetes, and sudden infant
death syndrome (SIDS)

attention spans in class.
Ways to Get Kids Moving
Two kinds of physical activity
1.
2.
STRUCTURED: Organized, quick, and intense
activities led by adults
UNSTRUCTURED: Free Play to stimulate the
imagination and creativity
Ways to Get Kids Moving

Add physical activity into your daily
routine
 Have children act out a story as you
read it to them.
 Encourage kids to move like
different animals during transitions
from one activity or room to another.
 Use props to help kids move and
identify shapes, colors and numbers
Ways to Get Kids Moving


Mix up the usual ‘hokey
pokey’ and ‘head,
shoulders, knees and toes’
with a dance party or
obstacle course
Encourage working
together to come up with
games and activities
Where to Play

Opt for the outdoors
as much as possible.

Be weather-ready.

Check your
childproofing.

Get down to their
level.

Let’s Play!
Keep infants active too
Tummy Time:
 Is allowing babies to interact and play while
awake and on their tummies


Prepares babies for sliding on their bellies
and crawling
Begins as a three-five minute period and is
gradually increased as the infant shows
enjoyment of the activity
Keep infants active too
During tummy time:


Encourage them to see, touch, and feel what’s
around them
Try putting their favorite toys just out of reach
REMINDER: Always make sure infants have tummy time when
they’re awake and alert and placed on a solid surface on the
floor (never on a surface that’s soft or up high like a mattress or
sofa).
Know the Developmental Milestones



Kids should do specific things at every age
and stage.
Know the milestones to help them work on
the appropriate physical and motor skills.
Check out the following chart of
developmental milestones from birth to 36
months old.




Mix it up — serve a variety of nutritious choices.
