Add Active Play to Your Day
Childhood obesity is the most prevalent health concern facing children under 5 in NY State. We can make a difference as children develop habits in their first 5 years of life by adding active play to the day. Learn fun, inclusive, developmentally appropriate physical activities that use inexpensive equipment, small spaces, and work well in homes, child care centers and preschool classrooms.
