Early Childhood

Information for professionals who work with children

A child's health is more than the absence of disease or injury.

Your goal as a professional who cares for children should be more than just keeping children safe.

Consider these facts:

  • The percentage of children who are overweight or obese is on the rise in Minnesota, as in the nation as a whole.
  • Healthy eating and physical activity habits develop at a young age and tend to carry over into adulthood, contributing to healthier lives.
  • Parents and caregivers play an important role in creating environments that support healthy eating and physical activity for children.
