MCH Education Series: Growing Healthy Colorado Kids
May 9, 2018

Colorado families are bombarded by various health messages every day. We maximize our messaging when all public health programs, health care providers, early care and education professionals, families and others work together to deliver consistent, accurate and consumer-tested messages. Speaking with One Voice provides nine audience-tested and Spanish trans created early childhood obesity prevention messages and supporting content that address important healthy lifestyle behaviors found most promising in preventing overweight and obesity before it begins among Colorado’s youngest children. This presentation will have additional focus on healthy maternal weight and active play for early childhood.

Following this event, the audience will better understand:

  • The development of the Speaking with One Voice: 9 Ways to Grow Healthy Colorado Kids consistent messaging campaign and supporting resources.
  • The importance of healthy maternal weight as an early childhood healthy weight strategy.
  • Using movement as a learning tool in early childhood and modifications for children with special health care needs.
Speaker: Emily Bash, MPH, RD, CLC, Nutrition Specialist, Early Childhood Obesity Prevention Unit, Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.
