About the Webinar

Healthy, sustainable eating patterns must address the unique nutritional needs of children, considering the impacts of food insecurity, malnutrition, obesity and educational achievement gaps on communities. The panel will discuss how prioritizing early childhood as a key opportunity to establish healthy dietary patterns can positively impact a child’s growth and development in the short-term as well as set the foundation for healthy eating habits later in life. Hear from state and national CACFP leaders on the programs and resources used to empower families with the knowledge and tools to make healthier eating decisions and create healthy eating habits.
