Infant Feeding in the CACFP - Revised

Last Published: 09/27/2017

The purpose of this memorandum is to consolidate, clarify, and provide additional guidance on infant formula and meal requirements in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). This revision clarifies that infant formula must be regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in order to be part of a reimbursable meal. Additionally, this memorandum extends the length of time refrigerated breastmilk may be stored at a center or day care home, updates guidance on creditable infant formulas, allows centers and day care homes to serve infant foods containing DHA, and addresses frequently asked questions. This memorandum revises an earlier version published April 10, 2015.
