Growing Strong Award



What is the Growing Strong Award & HEAL Champion program?

The Growing Strong award certification is a free and voluntary opportunity for all child care providers. This program assesses child care sites on their nutrition and physical activity practices. Participants receive support through the HEAL (Healthy Eating Active Living) program.


Through self-assessment, goal setting, resources and training we work with providers to help make improvements. Best practices will be recognized in areas that help empower children and their families in making life long healthy choices.

To join or participate or if you have questions please feel free to contact Madelene McCann, our HEAL Education Coordinator at 415.491.5784 or
