Since 1998, the Florida Department of Health’s Child Care Food Program (CCFP), a federally-funded program of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) authorized by 7 CFR Part 226 and section 383.011, Florida Statutes, has provided nutritious meals and snacks to eligible children who are enrolled with participating child care providers. In 2020, CCFP reimbursed child care providers for serving 122,663,154 meals to approximately 250,000 Florida children each day. Throughout the years, CCFP has also guided child care providers on the best ways to serve healthy foods and promote healthy habits for life by encouraging them to teach young children about food choices.
