Early Childhood

30% of low-income children between two and five years of age in Illinois are overweight or at risk for being overweight. Providing nutrition education at a young age can increase preferences for healthy foods into adulthood. CPHP provides education to Head Start and qualifying preschool youth and caregivers that promotes the consumption of healthy diets, daily physical activity and positive health behaviors specific to obesity prevention.
