FLIPANY Teaches Families How To Adopt Go, SLOW, WHOA For Healthier Nutrition!

Go Slow Whoa Broward County TOUCH

With the New Year upon us, why not join Early Learning Center directors, teachers and parents in adopting the Go, Slow, Whoa concept into your family’s daily routine?

With the goal of reducing childhood obesity in Broward County, FLIPANY has worked with the Transforming our Community’s Health (TOUCH) initiative to spread Go, Slow, Whoa curriculum into childcare centers. Go, Slow, Whoa activities and cones were one of the fun and exciting resources provided to 60 early learning centers throughout Broward County these past few months.  Go, Slow, Whoa incorporates the concept of a traffic light to various foods. Rather than labeling a food as good or bad, foods are designated as Go (green light), Slow (yellow light) or Whoa (red light) foods.

Go foods are foods that benefit the body by providing many nutrients and little calories, sugar, and fat. These include:

  • whole grains
  • fresh or frozen fruits and vegetables
  • fat free and low fat dairy
  • lean cuts of proteins
