About the Webinar
The webinar will focus on presenting the results from a research project that aimed to identify factors perceived to influence implementation of healthy eating policy, systems, and environmental strategies (PSEs) in child care settings serving low-income children. We will present the background of the project, the methods, and results of this mixed-method project. Finally, we will discuss how findings informed the operationalization of indicators and the development of an assessment tool designed to tailor PSE implementation to diverse childcare settings.
