Ohio Healthy Programs (OHP) is a five-part voluntary designation program that focuses on creating healthy habits, menus, policies, and family engagement in childcare centers and early childhood education programs to prevent childhood obesity. Child care centers must adhere to specific menu requirements and implement one new healthy policy each year. While working towards this designation, providers receive training and technical assistance to assist their program in creating healthy eating and active environments. Achieving this coveted designation illustrates to families that providers prioritize their child’s health and well-being, and helps children build healthy habits both at home and at school
