The Culture of Wellness Nutrition Education Program is a creative, fun, and experiential way for children to learn about healthy eating and incorporate healthy habits into their daily lives. The lessons involve food preparation and tasting while reinforcing Colorado’s Early Learning Framework to promote school readiness standards in a variety of disciplines. The Culture of Wellness Nutrition Education Program also offers nutrition education to the entire family through healthy recipes and newsletters.

Our physical activity program focuses on increasing opportunities for physical activity and teacher-led activities in the early care and education environments. We support educators in using their existing abilities, while developing new skills and strategies to increase the quality and quantity of structured physical activity. Titled Lead. Learn. Play., our program increases Moderate to Vigorous Physical Activity (MVPA) by teaching teachers to be intentional about leading structured physical activities on the playground and in the classroom.  Additionally, it provides children with portable play equipment and music opportunities, which we know lead to increased physical activity.

The COWP Policy, System, and Environment Change Process is a strategic planning process that leads to the implementation of center-based policy, system, and environment strategies known to increase student and staff opportunities for healthy eating and physical activity during the school day. Sites assemble a wellness team to go through the 4-6-meeting process under the guidance of a trained facilitator. COWP Wellness Teams are comprised of 3-8 team members from different backgrounds (e.g. the director, teachers, food service, parents, etc). Our expert facilitators will help your team develop a final wellness policy poster and workplace wellness program.
