Energy Balance 4 Kids with Play Wraps Up First Year

The Energy Balance 4 Kids with Play program is wrapping up its first year in five elementary schools in the Contra Costa, Calif., School District: Ford, Montalvin, Sheldon, Washington and Wilson. Next school year, EB4K with Play will be back, following the same students in fourth-through-sixth grades, as part of a two-year research study.

The EB4K with Play program is designed to improve students' nutrition and physical activity knowledge, attitudes and behaviors. The behaviors promoted in EB4K with Play are the ones research shows to be the strongest indicators of a healthy diet and healthy body weight:

  • Increased consumption of fruits, vegetables and fat-free or low-fat dairy products
  • Regular breakfast consumption
  • Improved snack choices
  • Decreased consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages
  • Fewer meals eaten away from home
  • Decreased screen time
  • At least 60 minutes of physical activity a day
