  • Description:
    This document outlines a ‘Spectrum of Opportunities’ exists by which states, and to some extent communities, can support ECE facilities in their jurisdictions to achieve recommended standards and best practices for obesity prevention. Each opportunity, described below, represents a unique avenue by which states or communities have worked successfully to change the ECE environment to improve nutrition, breastfeeding support, physical activity and reduce screen time in ECE facilities. Not all opportunities need to be pursued successfully in each state to achieve impact; however, it is likely that multiple opportunities pursued as part of a coordinated approach will be most effective at achieving desired goals. Some opportunities would disproportionately impact children from low-income families and, thus, are particularly relevant for addressing income-related health disparities. Successful ECE efforts require strong partnerships with diverse stakeholders and careful consideration of multiple factors that determine the viability of any opportunity at a given point in time, including but not limited to costs (resource, personnel), stakeholder support, available resources, reach, timing cycles, and ECE provider needs.
