Over the past two years, over 400 child care providers across Nebraska were trained and almost half were recognized with a Healthy Child Care Award for their effort to improve their child care program for healthy eating and physical activity. The training was focused on the NAP SACC Program which stands for Nutrition and Physical Activity Self-Assessment for Child Care (NAP SACC).

Child Care providers may have the opportunity to attend an upcoming NAP SACC training. Participating in a NAP SACC Training give providers a foundation of information, resources, and supports needed to improve healthy eating and physical activity opportunities in their centers and homes.
