Description:Nibbles for Health is a project developed by the Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). The newsletters and sharing sessions are intended for parents of preschool-aged children who participate in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), which provides meals and snacks in child care and adult day care facilities. However, these nutrition education materials can be used in other settings, such as the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) Program, to help parents and other caregivers promote healthful eating and active living to young children. In 2008, FNS revised the document and posters to reflect the 2005 Dietary Guidelines for Americans and MyPyramid.

Nibbles for Health offers a newsletter approach for reaching the parents and other caregivers of young children in your program. It is created as a series of easy-to-read, practical, and empowering messages. Each one addresses parentsí concerns about healthful eating and active living for the personal health of their child, family, and self. Descriptions and how-tos for four short sharing sessions are included, too. Simply presented, the focused messages are in a format that is easy for you to use.
