Nutrition & Physical
Policies

The Multi-Cultural Child Development Center has partnered with the Healthy Apple Program through Sonoma County 4Cs. 

The Healthy Apple program is designed by the Federal and State Health Department, to support Early Childhood Center and Educators to improve the nutrition, physical activity practices, and environment of child care facilities. 

The program is designed to keep our centers up to date with the most comprehensive policies, information, curriculum, and ideas to maintain the best Healthy environment for our children and their families, that includes nutrition and physical activity. The Healthy apple awards our achievements not only through recognitions, but also providing a vast variety of materials to support our efforts.

Additionally, our program is contracted by the State of California Food Program (CACFP). Press the apple to learn more: 

Exploring Nutrition 

We learn by doing. We decide with our teacher what vegetables or spices we would like to plant. We start from a seed, and everything takes over from that point. We experience science, math, language and social skills during this process. Best of all, we practice healthy eating habits.
