Are you tired of making the same lunches over and over? If you participate in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), you know how important it is to provide nutritious, well balanced meals for the children in your care. But sometimes it can be difficult to create new lunch and snack ideas while meeting all the requirements through CACFP. Even if you’re not part of the CACFP but provide healthy lunch options for the children in your care, you might want some ideas of what to make. The USDA has a great resource for you; the “Child Nutrition Recipe Box” is an excellent source of recipes that meet the CACFP guidelines.
