Breakfast in the CACFP
The Link is Our Daily Bread CACFP’s premiere child nutrition magazine. For over a decade, The Link has connected child care providers to CACFP recipes, training opportunities, menu planning advice, policy updates, and business operation resources.
Note: A previous edition of “The Link” child nutrition magazine listed chopped tofu as a meat/meat alternative suggestion for 6-11 month olds. While tofu is creditable for children 1-12 years old, tofu is not a creditable food component for children 6-11 months old. The current online edition of “The Link” has been updated to reflect this.
More information on serving tofu in the CACFP can be found on the USDA’s website: https://www.fns.usda.gov/cn/crediting-tofu-and-soy-yogurt-products-school-meal-programs-and-cacfp
