Good nutrition pays! The Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) plays a vital role in improving the quality of child care and making it affordable for many families requiring child care by providing reimbursement funds. The goal of the CACFP is to improve and maintain the health and nutritional status of children in care while promoting the development of good eating habits.
