Making Changes One Bite at a Time: New Meal Patterns

Learn the changes to the USDA’s Child and Adult Care Food Program New Meal Patterns. With the first change to the meal patterns since its creation in 1968, these New Meal Patterns bring research-based changes. This includes a greater variety of fruits/vegetables, more whole grains and less added sugar. This workshop prepares participants for the regulation changes that go into effect October 1, 2017 and covers the New Child and Infant Meal Patterns, meal and menu planning and best practices to implement these changes.

This free workshop fulfills the annual training requirements for CACFP participants. Co-licensed child care providers are also required to complete CACFP training each year.

This workshop has been MNCPD approved for 2 hours of training in Knowledge and Competency Framework Area: VII.C: Providing Healthy Nutrition, CDA Content Area: Safe, Healthy Learning Environment and Parent Aware 5. Nutrition.
