Nutrition Standards in Early Childhood Setting

Goal: Ensure that child care centers in TCI priority areas promote proper nutrition and developmentally appropriate practices.

Action: IPHI and School Readiness Consulting conducted a formative assessment among family childcare providers, County leadership, and nonprofits to identify the appropriate policy, system and environmental change needed to support compliance with Maryland’s Healthy Eating and Physical Activity Act. If feasible, IPHI and partners will support the identified policy, systems, or environmental change strategies identified through this assessment. Reports with assessment results can be found below.
