Nutrition and Physical Activity Self-Assessment for Child-Care (NAP SACC)

Intent of the Intervention

The Nutrition and Physical Activity Self-Assessment for Child Care (NAP SACC) program is a research-tested intervention designed to enhance nutrition and physical activity practices in early care and education programs by improving the:

  • nutritional quality of food served,
  • amount and quality of physical activity,
  • provider-child interactions around food and physical activity,
  • educational opportunities for children, parents, and providers, and
  • program policies related to nutrition and physical activity. 

The NAP SACC intervention primarily addresses the inter-personal and organizational levels of the socioecologic model.
