Support Positive Mealtimes

Early Learning & Child Care

Pleasant mealtime experiences are a priority for Alberta’s Early Learning and Child Care (ELCC) sector (Child Care Consultations Summary: Creating Healthy Eating Environments to Raise Healthy Children - Nutrition Services).

Use these resources to promote positive meal and snack times, to enrich children’s social connections, learning, and health.

Developed in partnership with ELCC stakeholders in Alberta, these ideas can promote positive eating behaviours in children, whether food is provided by child care programs or families.


Since ELCC programs vary, you may need to adapt some ideas for your specific setting.
