Active Early & Healthy Bites have been developed as companion, Wisconsin-based resources for improving childhood physical activity and nutrition. Active Early aims to increase the amount of moderate to vigorous physical activity for young children, while Healthy Bites aims to support environments, practices and policies that promote nutrition.
The Wisconsin Early Childhood Obesity Prevention Initiative (WECOPI) has spear-headed Active Early & Healthy Bites by conducting needs assessments, securing funds and designing, implementing and evaluating effective prevention strategies. WECOPI is composed of three Wisconsin State Departments: Health Services, Children and Families and Public Instructions, as well as other public and private partners.
