These recipes support children’s healthy growth and development with ingredients that are fresh, low in fat, and high in fiber. None of the recipes include added sugar.
The recipes can help early care and education programs meet nutrition standards from the federal Child and Adult Care Food Program, which call for meals and snacks served in group settings to include a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and limited sugar or saturated fat. The cookbook is divided into recipes for dairy, fruit, and vegetables. A section for seasonal recipes is also included. Each recipe includes a list of ingredients, directions, a picture of the prepared recipe, and, where needed, safety tips. Enjoy!
