The Healthy Home Child Care project engaged Extension educators as trainers whose role was to deliver the Journey to a Healthy Child Care Home intervention program to family child care providers. The program is currently being evaluated for effectiveness in changing family child care providers’ practices. The resource manuals used in the program; Let’s Go Play!, Let’s Go Eat Healthy!, and Let’s Go Cook! contain age-appropriate physical activities, nutrition education activities, and healthy recipes with strategies to support young children’s inclusion in the meal preparation process.
The resource manuals are available for download by Extension professionals to be used in programming directed toward pre-school age children or families with pre-school age children.
