Your child’s care provider participates in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). The CACFP is administrated by the District of Columbia Office of the State Superintendent of Education and is funded by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). The CACFP subsidizes the cost of the healthy meals prepared and served to your infant while in care. Your provider follows the USDA Meal Pattern Requirements for Infants (see below), as age-and developmentally-appropriate for your baby.
As a participant in the CACFP, your provider must offer formula and meals to all enrolled infants and children to relieve parents of the obligation to provide meals for their infants and children while they are in the provider’s care.
