Welcome to the ChildCareInfo.com Nutrition blog! Here, we are going to be discussing a variety of topics focused on child nutrition, as well as addressing nutrition for the entire family, child care providers, and of course, nutrition & health topics for the parents. Our children are the key to our future and we must take the time to keep them safe and more importantly, keep them HEALTHY! And this must happen immediately. According to the Center for Disease Control, childhood obesity has TRIPLED in the past 30 years! 19.6% of children 6-11 years old and 18.1% of adolescents’ 12-18 years old are considered obese. These are frightening statistics and we need to take measures to prevent these numbers from continuing to rise. Let’s use this amazing forum as a way to teach and learn from each other on how to keep our young healthy and strong.
