For Parents

 

Feeding children is an intimate and complex part of parenting. The joy of seeing children become competent in eating is a bonus for the work of feeding children.

Parents sometimes share the responsibility for feeding their children with child care providers and staff. Parents can find video vignettes and handouts at this site to help them think about good practices for feeding their children. Reading the handouts and viewing the vignettes can help parents know what quality mealtimes look like in quality early childhood programs.
