Child Care & School Environments
Tools for Child Care & School Environments
Families have tremendous influence over the health of their children, but children are also cared for by other adults in their community. Child care and school environments often determine what children are offered to eat and drink outside the home, as well as how much time they have for physical activity. We work on a variety of child care and school policy strategies that can support families in raising healthy children.
Marketing Matters: ChangeLab Solutions, through a contract with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health and funding from First 5 Los Angeles, developed Marketing Matters: A White Paper on Strategies to Reduce Unhealthy Food Marketing to Young Children to help local jurisdictions understand how they can regulate the marketing of unhealthy foods and beverages to kids, particularly those under age five.
