Good question! This program offers a number of benefits to you and especially to the children in your care. The primary goal of the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) is to improve the diets of children 12 years of age and younger by ensuring young children receive the nutrition they need while in child care. Children who eat the foods their little bodies and minds need often require less medical care, fewer services such as special education, and are more likely to live up to their full potential. The key is to teach children positive eating habits while they are young so they are able to enjoy these benefits throughout their lifetime. The benefit to you, the child care provider, is that you are reimbursed for a portion of your food costs, which assists by increasing your income for your child care business. Parents benefit by knowing their children are eating meals consistent with recommended guidelines and aren’t required to pay additional fees for their children’s meals.
