Free Online Training: The USDA’s Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) Nutrition Standards: Implications for Licensed CT Child Care Centers and Group Child Care Homes
This course is designed for Connecticut licensed child care centers and group child care homes that do not participate in the federal Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), and other non-participating child care providers interested in learning more about the CACFP. In this course, you will learn about the CACFP’s purpose, eligibility requirements, benefits of participation, and nutrition standards (meal patters). If your program participates in the CACFP, you do not need to take this course.
