USDA food guidance counts mixed fruit as only 1 food group component, thus a second fruit or a vegetable must must be served. Mixed vegetables also count as only one food group component. When mixed vegetables are served, a second vegetable or fruit must be served. Attention must be paid to the required grain servings. Chicken nuggets usually do not contain enough grain in the coating to meet USDA grain requirements. Another source of grain would need to be served.

The plastic bags are potential suffocation hazards. Plan of Correction: The facility responded with the following: 1. The rusted door and the wooden railing will be sanded and repainted. 2. For sanitation purposes, large, thick shower curtains will be purchased to be placed under the cots/mats of children who have accidents during nap time so that the carpeting is not soiled.

Standard #: 22VAC40-185-350-C Description: Based on observation and staff interview on 5/7/18, the center failed to ensure when children are regularly in ongoing mixed age groups, the staff-to-children ratio applicable to the youngest child in the group shall apply to the entire group.

The required ratio remained out of compliance until 1:10 PM, at which time six children ages 21 months - 2 years napped in one classroom with staff 2 supervising and the remaining 9 children, ages 3 years through 5 years napped with staff 1 supervising them. 2. Staff 1 stated that one staff person had recently gone on maternity leave and another staff who was at the facility in the early AM would be returning later in the afternoon.
