Healthy Way to Grow

Healthy Way to Grow is helping communities across the nation reverse the childhood obesity epidemic by supporting child care centers to improve practices and policies that will create healthier environments for young children.  By helping centers achieve best practice guidelines in nutrition, physical activity, screen time and infant feeding, we can help America’s youngest children grow up healthy.
