About Child Nutrition Programs
The Child Nutrition Programs
provide healthy, nutritious meals and snacks to the Nations children. Through the
National School Lunch Program and
School Breakfast Program, school children have
access to healthy meals. Through the Special Milk Program, school children who do not have
access to other meal programs can supplement their day with a serving of milk. Contact
your local school officials or your
Child Nutrition state agency to find out if your school participates
in the USDA school meals programs.
Through the Child and Adult Care Food Program,
children in child care settings have access to healthy meals and
snacks. Day care centers and home day care providers can participate
in the programs.
Through the Summer Food Service
Program, children are provided healthy meals during those times
when school is closed for the summer.
For historical and current Child Nutrition participation data, please
