5 Keys to Raising a Healthy Happy Eater in Child Care - online

This training has been created by Choices For Children (CFC) for Santa Clara County Child Care Providers and Center staff.  This unit provides the  knowledge and skills to follow the best practice, Division of Responsibility, messages in feeding young children. Based on the 5 Keys to Raising a Healthy Happy Eater parent education class, this training provides the same key messages which Health Care and Community agency providers and parents have received. Best practice feeding behaviors in child care environments help to prevent childhood obesity.
