Food Crediting Update: More Healthy Meal Choices for Your Kids


As of December 12, 2018, the Child and Adult Care Food Program updated the USDA Food Crediting in the Child Nutrition Program to include new food crediting items. Some of these updates include dried and semi-dried meat, popcorn, vegetable based noodles and pasta, and so much more! Visit Food Buying Guide for Child Nutrition Programs and CN Labeling: Manufacturer’s Product Formulation Statement for more crediting guidelines. Additionally, Nutrition Matters is a library of creative and colorful nutrition education tools, curricula, and training materials for child care providers and parents.
