I Am Moving, I Am Learning

Anoka County Community Health and Environmental Services is partnering with Anoka County Child Care Licensing to provide I am Moving, I am Learning (IMIL) and Learning about Nutrition through Activities (LANA) training for licensed child care providers in Anoka County.  The goal is to encourage an environment that models healthy lifestyles and nutrition by promoting physical activity and exploring creative ways to integrate fruits and vegetables into the childcare’s daily routine.

According to the National Association for Sport and Physical Education, The Physical Activity Guidelines for Children Birth - Five states that preschoolers (3-5 years) should accumulate at least 60 minutes of structured physical activity and at least 60 minutes of unstructured physical activity each day.  Participants in the training will be engaged in movement activities and learn methods to incorporate more physical activity into their day to assist them in meeting these guidelines.
