May 1, 2022 - Team Nutrition has just released the updated Crediting Handbook for the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). This updated resource is an important supplemental companion to the Food Buying Guide for CACFP operators for crediting and meal planning. The resource supports CACFP nutrition professionals in ensuring they have the knowledge, training, and tools they need to successfully operate the CACFP. The handbook provides information on the CACFP meal patterns, crediting guidance for each meal component, a Crediting in Action section to practice crediting skills, and a list of helpful resources. Major revisions include the transition to crediting grains in ounce equivalents (oz eq) instead of grains/breads servings, which went into effect on October 1, 2021.

Access the PDF version today: Crediting Handbook for the Child and Adult Care Food Program.

Stay tuned!

      • Printed copies will be available for ordering from Team Nutrition in the Fall.
      • The online Spanish-version will be available later this year.
