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.
