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.
