This section contains tools and resources for teachers and child care providers in child care programs to help improve the nutrition and physical activity environments.


Songs, chants, and finger plays can be incorporated into nutrition education activities to reinforce and introduce basic nutrition concepts. Songs are fun and encourage children to be active participants in the learning activity at hand. They also serve as great memory aids and learning tools to help children build
knowledge and vocabulary.
