Transition Period for Updated CACFP, Infant, Preschool Meal Patterns

Last Published: 05/18/2017

This memorandum outlines a transition period for the updated Child and Adult Care Food Program meal patterns and the updated infant and preschool meal patterns in the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program.  In recognition of the challenges associated with conforming to the updated requirements, the transition period outlined in this guidance will allow CACFP institutions and facilities and school food authorities (Child Nutrition Program operators) to adjust to the updated requirements in the first year of implementation without having fiscal actions imposed or being found seriously deficient.
