Discover: CATCH Early Childhood

October 30, 2014


The Jewish Community Center Association (JCCA), in collaboration with The University of Texas School of Public Health has created Discover: CATCH Early Childhood to help address childhood obesity in their communities.

  • Based on a foundation of Jewish values, the program nurtures a love of physical activity in children ages 3-5, and encourages them to develop life-long healthy eating habits.
  • The children also learn to differentiate between “go” foods (healthy) and “whoa” foods (less healthy).
  • The program engages teachers, children and families to work together to build healthy habits from school to the home by thinking more carefully about food and nutrition.
