Nebraska Healthy Child Care Project and Resources
Healthy eating and physical activity are vital to a young child's growth and development. These behaviors begin early in life and are fostered by the supportive child care centers and homes. Creating a healthy atmosphere requires leadership and committment. Nebraska child care providers have an important role to play to ensure that children in their care are served healthy foods and have time to be active throughout the day.
