What is HEAL?

The Marin Countywide Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL) Initiative brings together residents and community partners from throughout Marin to create a road map to improve community health. We are pleased to announce we have received a grant from the Marin Community Foundation for HEAL work with families and providers enrolled in our Access to Quality Child Care program. This program focuses on policies, systems and practices to support HEAL work in child care and support quality. Other opportunities include: more training  for the provider community, on-site work with specialists in different areas, garden and nutrition education and much more!

Get Your Protein On!

Protein is important for everyone's diet. This is especially true for growing children. All to often children's eating patterns are limited and are primarily composed of sweets, such as fruits, and carbs like crackers, breads and cereals. Protein is an important nutrients that helps build muscles and provides energy for active children. Protein digests slower than other foods creating a sustained energy. At every meal try to balance a protein through the many vegetarian or non vegetarian options.
