Child Care Nutrition Program
This project administers the Child Care Nutrition Program (CCNP) for family home childcare providers in Utah. It is a federally funded program through the USDA and is designed to offer assistance to day care homes in providing nutritious meals to children ages 12 and under or adults with a verified disability who receive care in a licensed day care home. Funding is disseminated through the Utah State Office of Education Child Nutrition Programs. The CCNP offers licensed childcare providers training in standards of quality day care and nutrition program guidelines. Providers must attend food program training every year and receive support and technical assistance through the CCNP.
