NIA Infant & Toddler participates in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). The main goal of this program is to insure that children in participating child care centers receive healthful meals and snacks and child care providers receive training in nutrition. Children and providers learn about food and healthy eating!
Nutrition is an important part of good child care and a healthy lifestyle. All children need well-planned meals and snacks that provide a variety of foods and the nutrients needed for good health and energy. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), through the New York State Department of Health, helps child care providers pay for meals and snacks that meet nutrition requirements for breakfast, lunch or supper, and snacks. A meal pattern outlines the kinds and amounts of food that must be served.
