Hawaii Child Care Nutrition Program

Family Child Care Providers

Family Child Care Providers may have their menus reviewed by a qualified nutrition consultant, or as part of their participation in the USDA Child Care Food Program through PATCH. The Hawaii Child Care Nutrition Program will work with providers to have their menus reviewed in order to help ensure healthful meals and snacks are provided to our children. Nutrition training and technical assistance will also be provided.
