Background

The King County Housing Authority (KCHA) worked to increased the availability of healthy food and opportunities for physical activity in child care by adopting nutrition and physical activity policies and standards that are incorporated into contracts with KCHA-funded on-site youth programming and into agreements with in-home child care providers.

What we accomplished

  • Developed new physical activity and nutritional standards for KCHA's in-home child care units and after school programs.
  • Successfully piloted physical activity and nutritional standards in child care units in the White Center area and Kent.
  • Incorporated physical activity and nutritional standards in youth programming contracts.
