HEALTHY EATING ACTIVE LIVING

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!

Yoga for Ages 0-5

Yoga is not just for adults, a new generation of children as young as 6 months old have been benefiting from the practices of Yoga. We have known for years the importance of play and movement for young children, but now there is new information sharing the many benefits yoga has for children 0-5. Supports Brain Development: The 0-5 age group children are learning at a rapid rate. “The basics of brain body and brain development, especially building strength and soothing skills for impulse control and self-regulation, are evident from the very beginning” Michelle Wing founder of Yoga kids. For example, repetitive yoga poses can help with cognitive and memory skills. Invites Creative Play: Yoga
