Healthy MeEarly childhood is a critical time for learning, and research shows that children's early educational experiences lay the foundation for their future development and achievement. The importance of early childhood education is not limited to the typical classroom subjects. Healthy habits like good nutrition and physical activity instilled in early childhood have the potential to last a lifetime.
St. Louis District Dairy Council has developed Healthy Me!...an early childhood educator’s guide for promoting nutrition and fitness among preschool and kindergarten students.
