What We Do

Child care providers are a base-camp for many families, providing nutritional meals, fun activities and loving care for children. MDNP works with Home and Center providers to make good nutrition work for thousands of kids in Washington child care settings.

Who We Are

Our team of trained monitors meet with Home Child Care Providers and Child Care Centers, giving them tools to provide the best nutritional care to children in their care.  Using USDA’s Child and Adult Care Food Program guidelines we provide training and consistency to ensure meals provided to children in their care meet the best nutritional practices offered in the USA.  Our cheerful team is focused on up to date nutrition requirements and recommendations, implementing them in Washington child care settings.  We supply the training, resources, and recordkeeping software required to keep childcares moving towards better nutrition.
