EAT for Prevention is an online program that helps family child care home (FCCH) providers implement responsive feeding practices to promote healthy eating in children. 

This study will evaluate this online delivery model’s effectiveness and implementation to improve children’s dietary intake and FCCH providers’ use of responsive feeding practices by comparing two implementation strategies, standard (online modules) versus enhanced (online modules and coaching), and evaluate FCCH providers’ adoption of change, continued use of the changed practices and drivers of implementation.
