In response to a number of inquiries, we wish to clarify that certain baby food products containing DHA cannot be served to infants as part of a reimbursable meal in the child nutrition programs. DHA is an omega-3 fatty acid known as docosahexaenoic that may be added to commercially prepared fruits or vegetables. This memorandum has been superseded by CACFP 14-2015: Infant Feeding in the CACFP, April 10, 2015.
