Description of the data source, numerator, denominator, survey questions, and other relevant details about the national estimate.
A state is considered to have food and beverage nutrition standards for children in child care if all licensed day care centers in the state adhere to one of the following regulations for preschool children: (1) meals and snacks follow federal Child and Adult Care Food Program or similar meal requirements, or (2) meals and snacks are consistent with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
For most states, licensed daycare includes child care centers, small family child care homes, and large family or group child care homes. Some states do not regulate small family child care homes. Other states do not include large family or group child care homes as a type of day care setting; instead they have one classification of family child care homes.
