Trainings for Early Care and Education Professionals
Healthy child development depends on eating nutritious food and being physically active every day. This is especially important during early childhood when young children are rapidly building their brains and bodies. The Center for Public Health Nutrition has developed a variety of early childhood-focused trainings, tools, publications, and research to support environments that make it easy for young children to be active and develop healthy eating habits.

Discovering Quality Information to Support Student Health: A Toolkit

Quality School Health Information
A toolkit for school staff, parents, students and others looking for current and credible health information on nutrition, drugs, violence and other health topics that influence academic success. The toolkit began as a collaborative project of the University of Washington Center for Public Health Nutrition and Seattle Public Schools.  Based on feedback provided by school staff, the kit was expanded and made available to schools state-wide with funding from the National Networks of Library of Medicine, Northwest Region of the National Library of Medicine.
