Creating Healthy Places Child Focused Interventions and Student Weight Status County Map
This layered map shows the locations of Creating Healthy Places interventions that are targeted towards children and the percentage of students (elementary, middle, and high school) who are obese (95th percentile or higher) by county (source: Student Weight Status Category Reporting System). The purpose of the Creating Healthy Places initiative is to implement community level interventions to promote healthy lifestyles to prevent obesity and type 2 diabetes. The lighter shaded counties have a lower percentage of obese students. The darker shaded counties have a higher percentage of obese students. This map can help identify areas that could benefit from more community level and school level interventions like the ones implemented through the Creating Healthy Places Initiative.
Child And Adult Care Food Program Participation Map
This map displays the names and locations of Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) participating day care sites and whether or not the site is Breastfeeding Friendly Certified with CACFP, participating in the Eat Well Play Hard in Child Care Settings (EWPHCCS) project, or participating in the Eat Well Play Hard in Day Care Homes (EWPHDCH) project. This dataset excludes Child and Adult Care Food Program participation provided at homeless shelters and legally-exempt day care home providers.
Not all counties in NYS are serviced by the grantees implementing the project EWPHCSS.
The EWPHDCH project is currently limited to the areas served by the contracted agencies.
The Child and Adult Care Food Program dataset is related to the Child Care Related Programs dataset on the Open NY website, but includes additional nutrition information. Temporarily, we have omitted addresses for regulated child care providers that provide home care since this information is available on Open.ny.gov by using this link: https://data.ny.gov/Human-Services/Child-Care-Regulated-Programs/cb42-qumz.
