New Nutrition Standards for CACFP Meals and Snacks

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) recently strengthened nutrition standards for food and beverages served to young children and others in day care settings. Through the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, championed by the First Lady and signed by President Obama, USDA made the first major changes in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP)
meals and snacks since the program's inception in 1968. The new CACFP nutrition standards will help safeguard the health of children early in their lives.

CACFP Wellness Resources for Child Care Providers

The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act (HHFKA) of 2010 encourages child care providers to promote health and wellness in child care through nutrition, physical activity and limited electronic media use. This Web site is dedicated to helping CACFP providers find the resources they need to meet recommendations in these areas.

Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP)

Centers and day care homes offering meals through the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) play a critical role in supporting the wellness, health, and development of children, older adults, and chronically impaired disabled persons through the provision of nutritious foods.

Child Nutrition Reauthorization (CNR)

Although the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 expired on September 30, 2015- the child nutrition programs continue to operate. The reauthorization of the programs is not required for them to continue, but itĀ is an important opportunity for CongressĀ to expand access to and improve the programs.
