Family Wellness

Family Wellness programs work with home childcare providers and licensed childcare centers to improve access to healthy, nutritious meals for children and train providers on topics of nutrition, exercise, safety, child development, and more.  Such services are much needed towards promoting the well-being of our community’s families.  Our Child and Adult Food Care Program (CACFP)  provides reimbursement services for food for qualifying individuals who operate daycare services in their homes for children and adults with disabilities.  Our providers are able to supply nourishing, wholesome meals and snacks to promote lifelong healthy habits. Our food providers are able to continue expanding their businesses and knowledge by receiving continuous education on nutrition and fitness. The Healthy Kids Healthy Childcare initiative is a statewide partnership to train licensed childcare centers and give them an action plan to promote healthy eating, physical activity, reduced screentime (time that children spend in front of a television screen or PC monitor), water availability, and breastfeeding resources.
