Child Care Food Program

The Child Care Food Program Roundtable is dedicated to improving the health and well-being of our nation’s children. We believe it is the right of every child to: 

  • Have access to sufficient nutritious foods
  • Receive consistent, positive messages by caregivers knowledgeable in good nutrition practices
  • Have a nurturing and supportive environment that provides for an enjoyable mealtime experience
  • Have a variety of healthy foods that reflect cultural and family values and allow for individual choices.
