SHIP and Child Care

Little children may spend the majority of their waking hours in a child care setting where they consume 30 - 60 percent of their daily calories. Therefore, child care providers can be a champion in encouraging healthy behaviors and building healthy environments. 

SHIP partners with child care providers to assess their current practices and environment relative to Best Practices and provide training on and resources for how these best practices might be implemented.
