The main objective of the Eeyou Istchee daycare food and nutrition project is to promote healthy eating to preschoolers. This will be achieved by:

  • Serving children healthy dishes at mealtime and snack time;
  • Introducing them to new foods through various activities;
  • Establishing a favourable environment to appreciate food.

The second objective of this project is to give means to parents to reinforce at home, sound eating behaviours learned in the Childcare Centre.

The document Daycare Food and Nutrition Program contains two parts:

1. State of the situation that gives a portrait of the distribution of the Cree population, the children eating habits, and the childcare services within Eeyou Istchee.

2. Planning of the Daycare food & nutrition program organized into four different training sections for: the cooks, educators, children and parents.
