The Institute of Child Nutrition - ICN

The Institute of Child Nutrition (ICN) is a federally funded national center dedicated to applied research, education and training, and technical assistance for child nutrition programs.  ICN is funded by a grant administered through the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Food and Nutrition Service (FNS).  The Institute's mission is to provide information and services that promote the continuous improvement of child nutrition programs.   A trusted source for accurate, reliable information, the Institute offers face-to-face and on-site training seminars at little or no cost and free online courses designed to support the professional development of child nutrition program and child care personnel at all levels of responsibility.  The Institute also delivers free training resources managers can use to train their staff.  Their website has everything from Best Practices and training to sample recipes for USDA’s child nutrition programs.
