Child Nutrition Programs
Idaho Child Nutrition Programs provide education, leadership, technical assistance, training, resources, oversight, and guidance on policies and regulations to ensure the nutritional well-being of all Idaho citizens. We are a professional team guided by the principles of public service, accountability, efficiency, and leadership to child and adult nutrition programs in Idaho.
These programs provide cash assistance and commodity foods to ensure children are adequately fed in public, private, and charter schools; residential child care institutions; preschools; and child and adult care centers and homes. The meals provided are guided by the U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
"The Idaho State Department of Education, Child Nutrition Programs are dedicated to improve the health of all Idaho children by serving and promoting dietary guidance that links scientific research to the nutritional needs of all students and customers we serve."
