BCDI-Atlanta works with Early Childhood programs locally to train early childhood educators (ECE) on fun ways to get children moving and learning about healthy eating. Teachers receive training and resources to implement the My Little World Curriculum; which integrates multi-cultural music and physical activities while promoting healthy nutrition practices.

Teachers successfully demonstrate their capacity to implement these engaging strategies to get kids moving early!  The children of these classrooms can be heard singing and moving while requesting their favorite songs. This approach to nutrition education serves as an enhancement to the overall programmatic strategies Early Learning Centers and can be embedded in lesson plans and introduced throughout an organization as a pivotal support system for children.

The Black Child Development Institute (BDCI) – Atlanta Affiliate is proud to combat the prevailing issue of early childhood obesity as they serve as a host site for the National BCDI Campaign – Promoting Healthy Nutrition Practices in partnership with State Farm through “Child Health Talk”.
