Over half of preschool aged children in Alberta spend time in an early learning and child care program. These programs can have a big impact on children’s eating habits - what they eat, when they eat, why they eat, and how they eat.
Public health dietitians in Alberta have met with members of the early learning and child care sector over the past several years. We have collected information to help us develop resources and tools to support healthy eating environments for young children. See the summary report here.
The following pages contain resources and tools to help programs and families provide and promote healthy food and positive attitudes about food and eating.
