Diabetes is a disease that affects the whole family, especially when a child is diagnosed. Whether you're a teacher to that child, parent, sibling or other family member, your support and understanding can make all the difference. There is no cure for diabetes, but it can be managed. Balancing nutritious food choices with exercise and medicine (if prescribed) will help control weight and can keep blood glucose levels in the healthy range.

ChildCare Education Institute offers NFS100 Healthy Habits: Nutrition and Fitness Practices as a beginner-level course designed to promote healthy eating and active play in the early childhood environment. Participants will learn why and how to develop a nutrition policy, strategies for working with families to promote proper nutrition practices at home, and curriculum enrichment ideas for increasing healthy lifestyle choices and reducing obesity.
