August 3, 2016 LeapFrog Solutions Honored for Work on Eat and Run
(FAIRFAX, VA) — August 3, 2016 — LeapFrog Solutions, Inc. (LFS), a strategic communications and marketing services firm in Northern Virginia, proudly announces that the National Association of Counties (NACo) has recognized its work on the Fairfax County Office for Children’s “Eat and Run” campaign with a 2016 Achievement Award.
Fairfax County developed “Eat and Run” to combat obesity and promote healthy eating and physical activity in family home daycare centers. The program trains childcare providers on pairing health food preparation with physical activity to meet the county’s Home Child Care Facilities Ordinance, which requires providers have adequate space both indoors and outdoors for physical activity and that they follow guidelines on child nutrition set by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
The Office for Children turned to LFS for help in developing a program book that providers could take home. “Eat and Run,” a large shoe-shaped book, contains 15 recipes and physical activities that childcare providers can use in their home childcare centers.
“We are delighted that ‘Eat and Run’ was given a 2016 Achievement Award,” said LFS President and CEO Lisa Martin. “The honor from a national association reflects the talent of our creative and account teams in delivering top-notch work that makes our clients happy.”
The “Eat and Run” campaign successfully recruits childcare providers to the USDA Child and Adult Care Food Program. According to Fairfax County, more than 450 childcare providers have attended an “Eat and Run” program.
