*IMIL In Action Power Point

The IMIL In Action power point submitted by Opportunities For Otsego, Inc. shows an overview of how IMIL is being implemented in Oneonta, NY Head Starts. First, Lil’ Choosy was created. Lily for short, is their version of a green mascot. Next, in January 2008, staff participated in an all day training. Training workshops included: MVPA, Nutrition Building Blocks, Dental/ Portion Size/ Recipes, and Homemade Props/ Toys. Pictures of each of the training workshops are included in this best practice entry. Following the all day training event, staff of Opportunities For Otsego, Inc. outreached into their community. The first event was the Oneonta Heart Run/ Walk on February 9, 2008 at SUNY Oneonta College Campus, followed by National Nutrition Month displays at Wilber National Bank from March 24-31. The power point closes with a slide dedicated to their collaboration with Wal-Mart who donated a smoothie machine for each of their 10 center, and pictures of their incorporation of smoothies and movement, and Lil’ Choosy in the classroom.
