Training slides marked with *(Revised April 2024) are ready for use and have been updated to reflect current CACFP policy related to breastmilk storage guidelines, ounce equivalents, and crediting soy-based products such as soy yogurt and tofu

Inspired by Team Nutrition’s CACFP Halftime: Thirty on Thursdays Training Webinars, these ready-to-go presentation slides can be used by state agencies, sponsoring organizations, and others to train providers, operators, and menu planners on the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) meal patterns. Presentations are designed for interactive 30-minute trainings. Optional training tools that can be used with these slides are also available.


These are available for schools, CACFP providers, sponsoring organizations, and state agencies that participate in or administer one of USDA’s child nutrition programs. All are welcome to download these materials and make copies. To download the file, please right-click on the link and "save link as."

These presentations are large files and may take a little while to download. Download one PowerPoint presentation at a time.
