Child and Adult Care Food Program
The Child and Adult Care Food Program is part of the National School Lunch Act. It reimburses child care providers for a portion of the cost of the food served to children in their care. This makes it possible for the provider to buy more nutritious foods, such as fresh fruits and vegetables.
The CACFP provides nutrition education and food safety training to licensed child care centers and homes.
This program encourages children to eat wholesome nutritious foods to help build strong bodies and develop good eating habits that can last a lifetime. Your child will be exposed to a variety of nutritious foods and may develop new tastes.
