Make Today a Try Day

Two Questions for You:

  1. Looking for a solution to the struggles of getting children to try new foods? 
  2. What do all children love? 

Stickers Are The Answer!

All kids love stickers and these might be just the answer to your "new foods" woes.  "Make Today A Try Day" stickers have been created by  Team Nutrition to encourage children to try new foods.  They have been used in focus groups with children to develop and choose the character that would be appealing to children.

Parent Engagement

They are also a terrific way to engage parents in the conversation of what the children did or tried in care that day.  The sticker will open up the conversation: 1) what did you try? 2) did you like it? 3) do you want it again? 

They are free! 

48 Stickers and A Poster or a roll of 200 stickers. 

 

Poster Sound like a Good Idea?

Visuals to point to on the wall are good too, so if you want a poster too, they've got you covered!

Samantha Marshall, M.A.

Samantha is, just like you, excited to make a difference in our community and our world. With a Master of Arts degree in English Literature, you might ask how she found herself building and writing for a website focused on child care. From 1995 through 2001, Samantha started her career working for Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) sponsors which introduced her to the importance of non-profits, community and quality child care. Her experience with Sponsors, State Officials, and Family Child Care Providers left a great and lasting impression. Later in her career and her most recent position at SAGE Publications, an academic publisher, was as a product manager for a new online resource! During this time many of Samantha's passions collided. A love for the written word, children and the proliferation of knowledge as well as a fascination with the resources the internet gives us, building a community for child care on ChildCareInfo.com is the perfect way to make the difference she wanted to. Needless to say, she is very excited to be an active part of creating and building ChildCareInfo.com.
