An Assessment of Nutrition and the Nutrition Environment in Licensed Child Care in Los Angeles County
Public Health Foundation Enterprises-WIC, The Child Care Food Program Roundtable, and the California Food Policy Advocates received funding from The Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert Foundation to conduct an assessment of the nutrition environment of licensed child care in Los Angeles County.
The goal of the assessment was to produce evidenced based recommendations to strengthen the nutritional environment in these settings. Researchers conducted observations of the lunch service at 54 licensed child care sites in Los Angeles County. In addition to observing the food served to children, observations were made of the feeding environment and practices surrounding food service. Finally, a number of key stakeholder interviews were conducted to provide a background and narrative to the observational visits.
