This Week in GeorgiaGov: Children
Childhood obesity in Georgia is reaching an epidemic level. As many schools are scaling back their participation in the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act, Georgia is providing incentives to schools to serve better food to students.
To ensure that children around the state are well taken care of, the Childcare and Parent Services (CAPS) program offers low-income families subsidies to pay for quality child care. CAPS covers costs for children 12 and younger; it also assists parents with special needs children up to age 17.
