Influencing the environment to create better choices.
Changing the environment is the best way to change behaviors. Research shows that if healthy nutrition and physical activity policies can be implemented in those places where children and families spend most of their time, their health will likely improve.
Jump IN Pledge for Healthy Kids
The Jump IN Pledge is a comprehensive framework for changing the environment and making the healthy choice the easy choice in all six settings that most directly influence children’s behaviors. Learn more about the Pledge.
Child Care Training
Research indicates that ages 2-5 are a critical time for instilling lifelong healthy behaviors. Jump IN has worked closely with national and local experts to develop a targeted training program for child care providers that helps them adopt healthy policies and procedures for their facilities. More than 150 providers have been trained in the pilot program. Learn more about our Child Care Training.
Employer Wellness Coaching
Healthy habits at the workplace often lead employees to take those habits home. But many small to midsize employers lack the resources or expertise to implement worksite wellness programs. To address this need, Jump IN has created “Healthy Worksites, Healthy Children,” a peer-to-peer coaching program that connects these smaller businesses with large employers that have implemented best practice employee wellness programs.
