Go NAP SACC
In April of 2013, NAP SACC released updated self-assessments instrument as part of the Go NAP SACC project. These new self-assessments incorporate the latest recommendations, policies guidelines, and research literature. The updated self-assessments were broadened to address nutrition and physical activity best practices for children ages 0-5 years. Self-assessments now address five key areas: child nutrition, breastfeeding and infant feeding, infant and child physical activity, outdoor play and learning, and screen time. Tailored versions of these self-assessments are also available for child care centers and family child care homes. The new self-assessment and information about Go NAP SACC can be found at http://gonapsacc.org You may continue to use the original NAP SACC self-assessment or try the new Go NAP SACC self-assessments.
