As a childcare provider, you play a key role in children’s lives. By working with children each day, you help them learn and grow. By serving them nutritious meals and snacks, you help children get the nourishment and energy they need to learn and grow – and be healthy. That makes your job very important.
Research has shown that there are crucial relationships between nutrition and health, and nutrition and learning. You are in a special position to show children what it means to eat for good health, including how important it is to eat a variety of foods.
More children are in childcare today than ever before. Some spend more time in childcare than they do at home. The meals and snacks served in your center or childcare home are an important part of providing proper care. Child Care Resources can guide you on where to get great information and help in providing healthy food every day.
We want every childcare provider to be connected to their community and to other providers. This is how we build our village. This is why we care.
