Making sure children eat right is important, even if they don’t know it yet.

NUTRITION REIMBURSEMENT

Did you know that when your licensed daycare serves nutritious meals, you can receive reimbursement? The U.S. Department of Agriculture created nutrition guidelines and a way to reward providers who follow them.

 

Children & Families First is a sponsor of the CACFP for child care programs throughout Delaware. The program ensures that children in licensed child care receive nutritionally balanced meals by reimbursing child care providers for serving meals that follow the guidelines from the U. S. Department of Agriculture.*
