WeTHRIVE! Child Care Initiative

Lawson Valley Daycare student enjoys fresh produce.
Child care providers have a unique opportunity to shape the lives of the children and families they serve. The WeTHRIVE! Child Care Initiative focuses on enhancing the nutrition and physical activity environment in child care settings by encouraging increased access to healthier foods and beverages, limited screen time and increased active play.

WeTHRIVE! recognizes that changing the nutrition and physical activity environment takes time and resources that many day care providers may not have. That's why we're here to help! Take a look at the materials below. For more information, contact Mary Ellen Kramer at 513-946-7926 or MaryEllen.Kramer@hamilton-co.org.
