||A comparative study of different types of training components of the Nutrition and Physical Activity Self-Assessment for Child Care project (NAP SACC) in terms of their overall effectiveness at preparing Child Health Care Consultants (CCHCs) to deliver the NAP SACC intervention. NAP SACC is an intervention for child care centers and family child care homes aimed at improving nutrition and physical activity policies and practices, including the nutritional quality of food served, the amount and quality of physical activity, staff-child interactions, and center nutrition and physical activity policy, through self-assessment and targeted technical assistance. With the help of a trained CCHC, centers complete a self-assessment instrument at pre and post-intervention to evaluate center nutrition and physical activity policies and practices in fifteen areas. This study gathers a sample of twenty CCHCs who volunteer to bring NAP SACC to their counties, randomly assigns them to one of two training methods--web-based and in-person group, and evaluates them on their overall nutrition and physical activity knowledge and their ability to provide technical assistance to centers.
