Proposed Rules Would Mean Healthier Snacks, No TV In Day Care Centers


Day care centers could no longer serve chocolate milk, cookies, or other sugary or fatty foods… and wouldn’t be allowed to sit kids in front of a TV… under proposed rules that are currently under consideration by the state of Illinois. 

 

The rules are aimed at promoting healthier choices for children.  They would also require giving children outdoor activity time twice a day, and would ban using food for rewards. 

 

The Bloomington Pantagraph says the proposed rules would apply only to day care centers, not in-home day cares.  Many center operators say they are already following similar standards, and don’t think the rules would affect them much.
