“At my childcare center, it's very important for me to focus on healthy foods for the kids (and us, too!). Most kids who come to us really love pasta and quesadillas, and we motivate them to try new fruits and vegetables. What we find really works is having them participate in cutting and preparing the food with us. Reimbursements from CACFP make this possible. Without them, we'd have to sacrifice the quality of the food we're able to provide." - Adriana, CACFP childcare provider
