** USDA Food Program Links &
Information for Day Care Providers**

The USDA Food Program is provided to educate
parents, daycare providers, and food service personnel, about healthy eating, and proper portion sizes for our children's growing needs. From ages one year, when children are
eating regular foods, and have out grown their need for
baby food is when the food program begins...
and continues through age 12.

Part of a daily healthy eating plan includes all of the
following food groups:
Breads, grains, cereals, pasta, and rolls.
Fruits, vegetables, and juice
Meats, cheeses, proteins, and legumes
Milk, yogurts, cottage cheeses, and

daily diet, but not included in the food program.
