Hip Hop to Health Jr. is an evidence-based program created by Marian Fitzgibbon, Dr. Melinda Stolley and revised by Dr. Angela Odoms-Young and Lara Blumstein. This program was funded by the USDA and its objective is to promote healthy eating habits and an increase in physical activity among 3-5 year olds. The Early Childhood Team at Chicago Partnership for Health Promotion (CPHP) has tailored this program to increase impact among the communities whom they service. The data at CPHP reflects that interactive education, sing a longs, food tastings and games have a positive impact on children’s food recognition and food classification. This webinar was presented by Antonia Mercer, MS, Early Childhood Intervention Coordinator, UIC Chicago Partnership for Health Promotion.
