Final Rule - Correction: CACFP Meal Pattern Revisions Related to the HHFKA of 2010

Last Published: 09/07/2017

This document contains technical corrections to the final rule published in the Federal Register on April 25, 2016, ``Child and Adult Care Food Program: Meal Pattern Revisions Related to the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.''

The final rule included typographical errors in 7 CFR 210.10(a)(1)(i), 220.8(a)(1), 220.8(o)(1), and 220.8(p)(1), the incorrect information for the serving size of yogurt in the infant meal pattern that appears in 7 CFR 210.10(q)(2), 220.8(p)(2), 226.20(b)(4)(ii)(A) and 226.20(b)(5), and a technical error for offer versus serve in 7 CFR 226.20(o). In addition, FNS is correcting the breakfast cereal sugar limit. The final rule provided a sugar limit of no more than 6 grams of sugar per dry ounce (no more than 21 grams sucrose and other sugars per 100 grams of dry cereal).

The intent of that limit was to be consistent with the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Woman, Infants, and Children (WIC). However, due to rounding, the breakfast cereal sugar limit in the final rule that appears in 7 CFR 210.10(o)(3)(ii), 210.10(o)(4)(ii), 210.10(p)(2), 220.8(o)(2), 226.20(a)(4)(ii), 226.20(b)(5), and 226.20(c)(1) through 226.20(c)(3) is inconsistent with WIC's breakfast cereal sugar limit of no more 21.2 grams of sucrose and other sugars per 100 grams of dry cereal. This correction amends the breakfast cereal sugar limit to align with WIC's breakfast cereal sugar limit and corrects the other errors described above. Note that the Special Milk Program regulations at 7 CFR part 215 were amended in the final rule, but no technical corrections are necessary in this amendment.
