A diverse group of professionals associated with Texas Woman's University's Institute for Women's Health, working collaboratively with school administrators, teachers, family support teams, and family members, developed Growing with EASE: Eating, Activity, and Self-Esteem, a nutrition program for young children and their families. In tracking the EASE in one prekindergarten program, the authors report a positive impact on families' knowledge and behavior: they were making better eating/nutrition choices, encouraging more physical activities, and demonstrating more effective parenting behaviors.
