February 27, 2014

ARLINGTON, Va., Feb. 28, 214-- The First Lady visited a Maryland child care center on Thursday to celebrate the four year anniversary of Let’s Move! Child Care and announce one early learning center's commitment to provide healthier options to their young students. Now, more than 13,000 child care centers nationwide are following the Let’s Move! healthy eating and activity guidelines.

Child Care Aware® of America joins the First Lady in this celebration as a founding partner of Let’s Move!Child Care. And the 2014 Symposium will continue this celebration with two special sessions called Health Aware. These two sessions will focus on the health and well-being of the “Whole Child.” Sessions include presenters from the USDA Food and Nutrition Service, Save the Children, Child’s Environmental Health and Let’s Move! Child Care.
