What is the Child Care Food Program?

 

       The Child Care Food Program is a federally funded program by the United States                              Department of Agriculture (USDA), which is sponsored locally by Infant and Child

       Nutrition, Inc. for licensed family child care home providers. 

       Family child care home providers must plan and serve nutritious foods that meet the

       requirements for balanced meals, and will be reimbursed for approved meals and  

       snacks served to enrolled children.  The USDA plays a vital role in improving the      

       quality of child care and by making it more affordable to serve healthy meals and

       snacks to children.
