In early childhood programs, staff members and families are important partners in helping children learn about their growing bodies and minds. Laying a healthy foundation in the earliest years can set the stage for a lifetime of healthy habits for families. Health literacy is a key to that foundation, and it refers to finding, understanding, and using health information to inform health-related decisions. Join your friends from the Sesame Workshop to learn about health literacy resources to help support families through healthy and not-so-healthy times. Discover ways to help caregivers understand, appreciate, and involve children in learning about and caring for their bodies.
