Nourishing our youngest children: How to expand the Child and Adult Care Food Program

This report examines CACFP, with a focus on the child care portion of the program. Based on input from child care providers, vendors providing food to children through CACFP and others participating in the program, this report examines the program's current implementation in New Jersey, including a look at barriers and challenges and recommendations to expand this critical child nutrition to more young children across New Jersey. It should be noted that the vast majority of regulations that govern CACFP are federal, not state, requirements. The program is administered on the state level by the New Jersey Department of Agriculture, which is charged with ensuring compliance with federal regulations. (author abstract)
