This resource has been prepared to provide information on creditable foods in child care centers, outside-school-hours centers, emergency shelters, at-risk centers, family day care homes, and adult day care centers participating in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). The primary goal of the CACFP is to improve the health and nutrition of children and adults in the program. The program promotes good eating habits and nutrition education. The Food Buying Guide for Child Nutrition Programs is the main resource used to determine the contribution foods make toward the meal requirements. The same rules apply for foods prepared on-site or purchased commercially. A glossary is included.
