CONFRONT OBESITY: CLASSROOM-BASED PHYSICAL ACTIVITY BREAKS FOR PRESCHOOL CHILDREN
Is there an achievement gap in obesity? In 2014, the CDC reported a disproportionately high obesity rate (14.5%) among preschool aged children from low-income families in the United States. We will present the results of a needs assessment regarding a Head Start location's initiative to increase the physical activity of preschool-aged children. Practitioners will learn about a simple, evidence-based practice to confront obesity in schools: classroom-based physical activity breaks.
