We hope that you find the following tools helpful as you work to ensure the health/nutrition and safety of the children in your care. When creating these tools, we consulted state and national standards. If you are not familiar with these, we guarantee you will find them very helpful. For instance, the document Caring for Our Children, 3rd Edition, is packed full of vital information relating to health and safety in child care setting. A great website to help you learn more about nutrition is http://www.choosemyplate.gov. It is packed with nutritional guidelines, recipes, activities and more.
