Health, the University of Washington Center for Public Health Nutrition, and Partners of the Plan throughout Washington.
The purpose of the Active Bodies Active Minds website and tool kit is to ensure that policies and environments for children ages 2-5 encourage minimum screen time and maximum physical activity. The site provides early childhood health and education professionals with access to background information and resources about the importance of limiting screen time and encouraging physical activity for young children.
Discovering Quality Information to Support Student Health: A Toolkit
