What We Do

Health and Wellness


"Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity."

- World Health Organization, 1948


To promote culturally-relevant healthy nutrition practices among Black families with young children, the National Black Child Development Institute developed and implements the Grow Green Get Fit and Good for Me! curricula through its Affiliate Network. The new Good for Me Recipe Book supplements the Good for Me curriculum and creates opportunities to deepen parental and caregiver engagement with children through a series of healthy recipes and developmentally appropriate activities.
