National Child and Adult Care Food Program Week

ENTERPRISE Ala.(WTVY)- A balanced diet is important for child development. Coming up with daily meal ideas is no small task especially for daycares.

The National Child and Adult care program is all about giving kids nutritious food options….a critical role in supporting the wellness, health, and development of children, older adults, and chronically impaired people.

The CACFP works with more than 40-daycares in seven counties
In addition to training, CACFP reimburses licensed providers and gives day care owners resources for creative snack ideas for kids.

Latofia Jones says home providers and centers don't know how valuable they are with starting the children out with the nutritious and balanced meal so we just want to let them know we appreciate what they're doing".

The National Child Care and Adult Food Program is through the 17th of March.
