Research shows that well-nourished children are healthier, more attentive, and have better mental performance than children who are under-nourished. Findings also indicate that children served by the Child Care Food Program (CCFP) eat healthier food than children who bring food from home. The CCFP helps child care facilities implement "best practices" to ensure children have access to a variety of nutritious foods for healthy growth and to reduce obesity risk.
Our school participates in Florida’s Child Care Food Program. It is a federal program run by the USDA’s Food Nutrition Services Dept. The primary goal of the CCFP is to improve the nutrition of children 12 years of age and younger.
The program provides support to licensed child care programs to provide high quality, nutritious, and appealing meals and snacks to infants and children in our care as well as learning activities that support the growth and development of healthy eating habits.
The CCFP strives to give children the foundation they will need to make healthy eating choices and good nutrition a part of their everyday lives.
We understand many children have dietary restrictions due to allergies, religious beliefs and/or personal preferences. Should you wish to limit or forbid certain food items for any reason, please notify us beforehand and we will ensure that no offensive food item is served to your child.
