Child Care & Preschool

You can help improve the health and school readiness of Indiana’s infants and toddlers by making child-care settings healthier places to learn! You can start by increasing the number of opportunities for healthy eating and physical activity in child-care settings.

Check out Let's Move Child Care, an initiative started by Michelle Obama, to help curb childhood obesity. This site provides tools and resources for child care providers and parents on making sure children have a healthy start. If you are a child care center or home that is making a difference with physical activity, nutrition, screen time, and/or breastfeeding, please visit this site to sign up and be recognized for your efforts.
