Building Healthy Lifestyles in All Directions recently announced that six of their participating childcare centers in Cabarrus County have earned the Breastfeeding-Friendly Childcare Center designation in July 2017. Currently, less than 50 childcare centers across North Carolina hold this coveted designation.
The Breastfeeding-Friendly Childcare Center designation requires centers to complete a number of steps - 10 total - earning a "golden block" for every two steps completed. By participating in this voluntary program, childcare centers can help improve breastfeeding rates, leading to healthier people in Cabarrus County.
Congratulations to the following Breastfeeding-Friendly Childcare Centers in Cabarrus County:
