Grow healthy and Fit
We work with Food Program department of Community Coordinated Care for Child Florida (4C) .This program is federally funded and regulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). In Florida, the Department of Health Bureau of Child Nutrition administers the program. Child care centers, Head Start sites and licensed family child care home providers are eligible to participate. The CCFP helps fight hunger and obesity by reimbursing eligible centers and home providers for serving healthy meals that meet the CCFP meal requirements to children in their care. Providers sponsored by 4C have access to nutrition resources, training, and technical assistance. 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.
