New Proposed Healthier CACFP Meal Standards


The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has recently proposed a new meal pattern for the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). There is currently an opportunity for public comment concluding April 15, 2015.

The proposed rule, “Child and Adult Care Food Program: Meal Pattern Revisions Related to the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010,” will affect CACFP programs in Head Start, child care centers, family child care homes, after school programs, and school meal programs in school-based PreK and expanded learning time programs. .
