To support the health of our country’s youngest children, early childhood programs are increasing their focus on nutrition and obesity prevention.  This session will give examples of how a QRIS can support a variety of health strategies and other effective policies at the state and community levels. Speakers will discuss the impacts of the growing national farm-to-early childhood education movement in four states and the partnership in Miami that resulted in a trial program aimed at reducing health disparities for young children and their families.
