Commercial child care facilities that prepare and serve food of any kind must maintain a Salt Lake County Health Department permanent-facility food service permit.
Maintaining that permit includes regular, unscheduled inspections of the kitchen, and these establishments must meet the same requirements as other permanent food service facilities.
In addition to maintaining a SLCoHD food service permit for their kitchens, child care facilities in Utah must be licensed by the Utah Department of Health.
The Salt Lake County Health Department offers education and assistance to all child care facilities about physical activity, childhood nutrition, and ensuring balanced meals for the children at the facility.
Visit our Nutrition program for information about how your child care facility (whether it's residential or commercial) can become TOP Star endorsed as a facility that promotes good health through proper nutrition and physical activity.
