Introduction to Healthy Eating Recommended Practices
HEALTHY EATING EVERYDAY!
Early Learning environments such as preschools, early childhood education centres, family daycares and parent participation programs play a key role in helping children build healthy eating habits that can last a lifetime.
The Appetite to Play Recommended Practices have been developed to help you create a setting that promotes and supports healthy eating and healthy child development. These good practices will assist you whether you provide the food or it is brought from home.
In BC, the Community Care and Assisted Living Act’s Child Care Licensing Regulation (CCLR) and Director of Licensing Standards of Practice set the requirements for all licensed child care facilities. Operators of licensed child care facilities must comply with both the regulation and the standards. This resource includes statements that directly or indirectly relate to a requirement for licensed child care facilities.
