Child And Adult Care Food Program Nutrition Standards

Kids’ Safe and Healthful Foods Project

The Kids’ Safe and Healthful Foods Project, a collaboration of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and The Pew Charitable Trusts, is conducting an HIA to inform the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s work on creation and implementation of a final rule updating the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) nutrition standards. CACFP provides funding for meals and snacks served to more than 3 million children a day in a variety of child care and after-school settings.

The HIA will identify and analyze the potential implications of the proposed rule for the short- and long-term health of children, from birth to age 5, who participate in CACFP; determine what effect the rule may have on child care providers’ participation in the program; and identify the rule’s potential economic impacts on providers.

The research will be conducted in coordination with Kansas Health Institute, Upstream Public Health, and Catalyze Research and Consulting.
