I Am Moving, I Am Learning (IMIL) is a proactive approach for addressing childhood obesity in young children birth to five within Early Care and Education settings. IMIL has 3 overall goals for building lifelong healthy preferences:

  1. Increase the quantity of time spent in moderate to vigorous physical activity (MVPA) within daily routines to meet national guidelines (a total of 120 minutes daily for preschool children)
  2. Improve the quality of movement experiences intentionally planned and facilitated by informed and participating adults, including teachers and parents
  3. Promote healthy food choices every day for children, teachers, and parents.

The interactive and high-energy training is infused with ideas, strategies, lively music, and resources for embedding quality physical movement experiences and healthy nutrition choices within the existing curricula of Early Care and Education programs
