NUTRITION: TEACHING & RESOURCES
Daycare Provider, show your parents good nutrition is part of your child care. Provide them with interesting information and tools. You can copy this short column and create a parent flyer to give out with the links as a way to help them to better nutrition for their children. Digital media can support children’s learning when the games are interactive. Interactive games are designed to simultaneously teach and entertain your kids. Although our goal is to reduce screen time, it is important for providers and families to understand which types of digital media sources are beneficial for a child’s cognitive development. Below are links to resource pages with interactive nutritional games your kids will enjoy.
