Healthier CACFP

The purpose of the Healthier CACFP Recognition Award is to expand and complement established efforts to improve early child care menus, nutrition education, physical activity and the child care environment. Anticipated outcomes are to improve the quality of foods served; instill pride in contracting entities (CE); recognize the CE’s importance; and ease the transition to the proposed CACFP meal pattern. With one in five children being overweight or obese by the age of 6, child care centers play an essential role in the prevention of childhood obesity.
