Building Blocks Academy has joined forces with our First Lady Michelle Obama and her initiative LET'S MOVE! to "raise a healthier generation of kids".
Let’s Move! Child Care Goals
1. Physical Activity: Provide 1-2 hours of physical activity throughout the day, including outside
play when possible.
2: Screen Time: No screen time for children under 2 years. For children age 2 and older, strive to
limit screen time to no more than 30 minutes per week during child care, and work with
parents and caregivers to ensure that children have no more than 1-2 hours of quality screen
time per day (as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics).
3. Food: Serve fruits or vegetables at every meal, eat meals family-style whenever possible, and
don't serve fried foods.
4. Beverages: Provide access to water during meals and throughout the day, and don't serve
sugar-sweetened drinks. For children age 2 and older, serve low-fat (1%) or non-fat milk, and
provide no more than one 4- to 6-ounce serving of 100% juice per day.
5. Infant Feeding: For mothers who want to continue breastfeeding, provide their expressed
milk to their infants and welcome them to breastfeed during the child care day.
