Looking through my notes from the CCFP Roundtable conference 2011 and feeling very lucky that I had the opportunity to attend.  One of my favorite workshops that I was able to attend was “A Taste of the World: Bringing Multicultural Foods and Activities to Your Children” given by 3 women from the Learning Care Group.  Donna Pomerson, Sherrie Gomez, and Staci Larsen provided great examples and materials to take home about bringing multicultural foods and activities into the child care environment.  They said I could share this with you and I am so excited to do so right now!

I came across this awesome video challenge on the USDA's MyPlate website and wanted to get the entire Child Care Info community participating! Here is the challenge: Create short videos (about 30 seconds) demonstrating how you are adding fruits and veggies to your diet without breaking the bank.  Get really creative...the judges are looking for videos that are inspiring, educational, fun, easy, and cost-effective ways that will motivate others to add more fruits and veggies to their diet too.   There are three categories to choose from: Tips for kids Tips for eating at home Tips for eating away from home The goal of this challenge is to bring more awareness to USDA's MyPlate and their mission to help Americans understand the importance of making half their plate abundant in healthy fruits and vegetables. Timeline: Submit your videos: September 26, 2011 - November 15, 2011 Judging: November 21, 2011 - December 12, 2011...
