EB4K with Play Program: Year 2 Wrap-Up

The Energy Balance 4 Kids with Play program is wrapping up its second year in four elementary schools in the West Contra Costa (Calif.) School District: Ford, Montalvin, Sheldon and Wilson.

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 shown by research 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 TV or computer screen time
  • At least 60 minutes of physical activity a day.

During the next school year, EB4K with Play will follow two schools for a year in 3rd through 5th grades.
