4-C: Community Coordinated Child Care

Food Program Tips and Ideas

  • Record menus and attendance at the same time everyday to develop a habit.
  • Cooking for your family? Make extra to serve for lunch the next day for your child care children (make sure you have enough to make serving size for all children).
  • Make Friday “leftover day” to clean out the fridge! Make sure you have enough of each component to make serving size for all children – remember, you can serve different items to different children!
  • Got spray bottles? Fill them with tap water, add food coloring and scurry outside in the snow with the children. Wait until you see what happens when the children spray the water on the snow (keep the water off the sidewalks and the driveway to avoid more ice)!
