Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) Provider Kim Jackson of Osceola, IA featured by National CACFP Sponsors Association

Growing and learning with homemade, fresh food will help
you make healthy choices as you go through life.

— Kim Jackson

AUSTIN, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, January 16, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — As a pre-vet major, Kim Jackson never imagined herself as a child care provider. After helping a friend with their
child care home twenty years ago, she hasn't looked back. While watching the kids grow and reach life milestones, Kim has a feeling of accomplishment because she was there to influence them along the way and this continues to motivate her as a provider today.

Like many child care providers, Kim felt that quick, pre-made meals were the best way to make sure the children in her care were fed. When a friend introduced her to the idea of serving homemade meals with fresh ingredients, she wanted to try, but was not convinced it was going to work. Only five years later, about 90% of the food served consists of fresh fruits and vegetables and using all Iowa products has become a passion. Kim now knows she can not only serve homemade, fresh food, but can succeed in serving her kids with the most nutritious meals possible.

Leaving a basket out of a variety of carrots and allowing children to examine them is just one way Kim gets the kids involved in their own nutrition. Homemade applesauce and pear butter are fun recipes the kids have assisted with. They have their own garden, visit the local farmer's market and help with food choices.

During family style meals, Kim has noticed the kids now eat more of the nutritious choices than they did when they started out. It is a change, but the kids are now used to the foods and like them more. It is an evolving process, but can definitely be accomplished!

Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) Provider Toni Bingham of Austin, TX featured by National CACFP Sponsors Association

"I give 150%. I'm ready. I love what I do!"

— Toni Bingham

AUSTIN, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, January 5, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — A full spread of fruits of every variety—familiar and different—is laid out to see, touch and taste. The children will each be given age-appropriate instructions to make individual fruit salad with their chosen fruits. Next week, vegetables are on the menu where the kids will again be able to experience a wide assortment.

Eating healthy and making good food choices is incorporated into everyday learning. "It's just a part of our program," Toni notes. Wednesdays are "food experience" days involving the children tasting new foods and working on basic Kitchen/cooking skills. They plant a garden each year, help with preparing food, and learn every day from the very active role model they have in Toni. Parent volunteers even lead the kids on weekly fitness walks through the neighborhood.

As part of the CACFP, nutrition is a key ingredient in Toni's child care, but what is also more than apparent when speaking with Toni is her love and passion for what she does. "I give 150%. I'm ready. I love what I do!"

After 40 years of working in child care and over 20 years of owning her own facility, Toni knows that learning is not all about the end product. Much can be learned from the process, spirit of giving and life-long lessons. Her goal as a child care provider is to integrate nutrition, education and life lessons into her loving child care home.

IQF products and the global frozen food market

The global frozen food market is in a continuous growth, due to several factors.

MALMö, SWEDEN, January 5, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The global frozen food market is in a continuous growth, due to several factors: the increase of the global population, shortage of food in different regions, particular demographic changes and, of course, the growing demand for frozen foods in the food industry.

Another important factor is the behavioral changes of the consumers in the modern world. The increased number of women who work and have less time for cooking and the increased number of people who live alone led to an important growth in the frozen food industry.

In order to keep up with all these changes, the frozen food businesses developed more efficient freezing technologies, like IQF (Individual Quick Freezing). This way, they can offer a larger variety of products and meet the customers’ needs better. As time went by, consumers became more and more informed about the superiority of frozen products, compared to the standard fresh ones, and started to see them as a more suited alternative for a healthy lifestyle. In economic and marketing terms, these changes were reflected in a larger dedicated place for frozen products in supermarkets.

The global frozen foods market is expected to be worth almost 308 billion dollars by the end of 2020. From a geographical point of view, Europe is experiencing the most significant growth of demand for frozen products, especially IQF products, due to the fact that European consumers consider frozen food to be more safe and suitable for their lifestyle.

The major players in the global frozen food market that use IQF technology are Nestle, followed by General Mills Inc., Heinz, Unilever Plc, McCain Foods, The Schwan Food Company, Iceland Foods Ltd., Birds Eye Foods and Tyson Foods.

The new IQF freezing technology is a major influence in the frozen food market trends. IQF, or individual quick freezing, is the response to the increasing demands of today’s consumers, which have high expectations of the frozen food they are buying and eating. The producers are now challenged to provide top quality frozen products that balance the appearance and the nutritional value in a perfect combination. This can only be obtained by using innovative and high technology freezers, like OctoFrost™ IQF tunnel freezer.

IQF technology meets the expectations of the global frozen food market. IQF freezing is a revolutionary trend on the market, replacing the old, inefficient and expensive process of freezing in bulk, which damages the products.

IQF or individual quick freezing is the process of quickly freezing each unit of product separately, by using cold air that is blown at a high speed on a fluidized bed. Products that are frozen using IQF technology have better flavor, texture and are more nutritious than product frozen with different methods.

OctoFrost™ is one of the global leaders in IQF technology, producing freezers that offer multiple advantages for food industry businesses, like high yield, natural appearance, reliable food safety and energy efficiency. With OctoFrost™ IQF tunnel freezer, you don’t need to worry about the quality of your frozen food products.
