The Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) administers the nutrition assistance programs of the U.S.Department of Agriculture (USDA). The mission of FNS is to provide children and families better access to food and a more healthful diet through its food assistance programs and comprehensive nutrition education efforts. In addition to providing access to nutritious food, FNS has elevated nutrition and nutrition education to a top priority in all its programs. One such program is the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP).

The CACFP serves nutritious meals and snacks to eligible children who are enrolled for care at participating child care centers. CACFP also provides meals and snacks to children and youth who participate in afterschool care programs or reside in emergency shelters.

USDA’s FNS administers the CACFP through grants to States. The Program is administered by the State educational agency or another agency designated by the State. Independent centers enter into agreements with their administering State agency to assume administrative and financial responsibility for CACFP operations.

FNS recognizes that maintaining a high-quality, nutritious meal service requires a commitment to excellence on the part of child care center personnel. The FNS applauds the efforts of the many dedicated persons who ensure that the participating children are served wholesome, appealing, and nutritious meals in a sociable environment while meeting the requirements for Federal assistance.

The CACFP is a federal- and state-funded program that gives financial aid to child care centers, adult day centers, and day care homes to provide nutritious, well-balanced meals, and develop healthy eating habits for children. Little Stars Preschool had participated in the program and promise to provide healthy food to our children.

Toddlers

At this age, children are meeting new challenges as fast as they come. Crawling, walking and eventually running are levels they accomplish in what seems like a blink of an eye.
