Jackson Child Care
March 13, 2023
We are celebrating CACFP week by promoting healthy meals and introducing new foods to the children in our care, using the book Fast Food by Saxton Freymann and Joost Elffers as inspiration.
Our focus will be the MyPlate five food groups to guide healthy eating and foster nutritional knowledge through cooking activities. We will also discuss how healthy and unhealthy foods affect our bodies and make connections to February Dental Hygiene Month, with teeth as the beginning of the digestive system. Mealtime is a fun and interactive learning experience that helps develop life skills and early learning foundational skills while introducing new and healthy foods.
