The Child Health Initiative for Lifelong Eating and Exercise (CHILE) nutrition and physical activity curriculum was developed by a team from the University of New Mexico Prevention Research Center, along with Head Start teachers, directors, nutrition coordinators, parents, aunts, uncles, and grandparents about their children’s health and eating habits. It is designed to be carried out over the course of two years, then repeated. The purpose of CHILE Plus is to improve nutrition and physical activity behaviors through classroom meals, lessons and activities, supplemented by family educational materials and face to face family events.
