Eat Well Play Hard

Child Care Council works with CACFP-participating child care centers to provide the Eat Well Play Hard in Child Care Settings (EWPHCCS) program, a nutrition and physical activity curriculum designed for pre-school children and their parents. EWPHCCS provides consistent and positive messages about eating healthy foods and being physically active to three- and four-year-old children attending child care centers and their caregivers.

Child Care Council offers EWPHCCS to child care centers in Monroe, Livingston, Wayne, Niagara, Erie, Orleans and Genesee counties.

In 2016, 1,159 preschool-age children and 82 parents received nutrition lessons through this program, and we trained 230 child care staff to administer it.
