Child And Adult Care Food Program Participation

$199 / year

The Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) is a nutrition education and meal reimbursement program helping providers serve nutritious and safely prepared meals and snacks to children and adults in day care settings. This dataset includes the names and locations of participating day care sites and whether or not the site is Breastfeeding Friendly Certified with CACFP, participating in the Eat Well Play Hard in Child Care Settings (EWPHCCS) project, or participating in the Eat Well Play Hard in Day Care Homes (EWPHDCH) project.

Complexity

The purpose of New York State Department of Health Child and Adult Care Food Program is to ensure that nutritious and safely-prepared meals and snacks are available to children and adults in day care settings and to provide reimbursement for qualifying meals and snacks served in child or adult day care centers, outside-school-hours care programs and family day care homes.

The New York State Department of Health annually receives funding from the federal government to support and further enhance New York’s Child and Adult Care Food Program’s (CACFP) statewide. The CACFP initiative is supported through an entitlement program from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and continues New York’s commitment of promoting the health and well- being of its residents. Currently, more than 1,500 sponsoring organizations representing 14,000 licensed or registered center-based or family day care sites are participating statewide. On average, day care providers serve approximately 300,000 meals to children and adults each day. In 2010, New York received nearly $190 million in federal USDA funds for this expanded nutrition program.

This dataset contains day care home provider and day care center programs participating in CACFP. Participating programs in CACFP are child care centers, including Head Start centers, outside school hours programs serving children through age twelve in licensed or registered non-residential settings, after school programs providing educational or enrichment programming for children up to nineteen years of age in low income areas, community-based adult day care centers that are approved by federal, state or local authorities to provide day care services to functionally impaired adults through individualized care plans, and home-based and group child care. Legally exempt day care home providers and homeless shelters participating in CACFP are excluded from this dataset. The dataset also includes indicators for Breastfeeding Friendly Certification and participation in either Eat Well Play Hard in Child Care Settings (EWPHCCS) or Eat Well Play Hard in Day Care Homes (EWPHDCH) projects.

Day care home providers are divided into several types: Registered, Licensed, Legally Exempt and In-Process. Registered refers to “family day care”, typically having a capacity of 5-6 children and 2 school-age children. Licensed refers to “group family day care”, typically having a capacity of 10-16 children. Legally Exempt is a child care setting of the providers related children plus two unrelated children. In-Process means the provider is in the process of becoming either a Licensed or Registered provider.

Breastfeeding Friendly Certification:
The New York State Department of Health’s Obesity Prevention Program encourages new mothers to breastfeed their infants. The Department’s Child and Adult Care Food Program encourages child care centers and family day care homes to support breastfeeding families and recognizes these providers with Breastfeeding Friendly certificates. Child care center/day care home staff complete an assessment that shows they support breastfeeding families.

Eat Well Play Hard Child Care Settings (EWPHCCS):
The EWPHCCS project, through the provision of six lessons to both young children and their parents, and two lessons to child care center staff, aims to provide consistent and positive messages about eating healthy foods and being physically active to three and four year old children attending targeted child care centers and their caregivers (at home and in child care).

Eat Well Play Hard Day Care Homes (EWPHDCH):
The EWPHDCH project was designed as an educational and environmental change program with Day Care Home (DCH) providers as the primary target audience and the children and their parents as the secondary target audiences. The primary goal of the program is to help DCH providers make changes in their environments to promote healthy eating and increased physical activity for the children in their care.
