Out-of-school time settings can play a key role in developing a child’s healthy eating and physical activity habits. Access to nutritious foods in out-of-school time settings could determine a young person’s diet. And physical activity opportunities get kids moving throughout the day and teaches them how to stay active for a lifetime.
Out-of-school time providers across the country are already supporting the healthy development of young people. To build on these efforts, the Alliance is combining its knowledge and experience to give staff in these settings the most comprehensive support possible to create environments for healthier eating and more physical activity.
