What We Do
The Division of Chronic Disease Prevention and Control works with early childhood educators to promote healthy eating, physical activity, and reduced screen time throughout the city. We offer learning collaboratives to promote policies for physical activity and nutrition as well as different training series for early childhood education.
Boston Healthy Child Care Initiative:
The Boston Healthy Child Care Initiative (BHCCI) helps child care programs improve their capacity to implement policies and practices that support healthy eating and physical activity in infants, toddlers and preschool-aged children. The goal of BHCCI is to promote policy, systems and/or environmental change strategies in child care settings to increase the number of child care providers who:
Provide access to healthy foods
Provide access to healthy beverages
Provide access to physical activity opportunities
Decrease access to screen time
Increase opportunities for breastfeeding
