Make Every Day a Healthy Day!: Sesame Workshop Distributes Nutrition and Physical Activity Kit to Child-Care Providers Serving Preschool Children

Informing family-run child-care providers how to integrate healthy nutrition and physical activity into their programs serving preschool children

In 2009, Sesame Workshop, the non-profit organization behind Sesame Street and so much more, further disseminated the Healthy Habits for Life Child Care Resource Kit (HHFL Resource Kit), a comprehensive tool to help home-based child care providers integrate nutrition and physical activity into daily routines in their programs serving preschool children. The kit was created previously, and this project enabled both its wider distribution and independent impact research.

Kidpoint, a research and evaluation firm located in Columbus, Ohio, conducted an evaluation under a subcontract from Sesame Workshop to assess the resource kit and found that providers, parents and children all had generally positive experiences.
