USDA Food Program

The Child Development Program provides meals and snacks throughout the day. The guidelines established by the USDA Child and Adult Food Program ensures that the meals and snacks meet nutritional requirements for each particular age group of children in care. A four-week cycle menu is followed to allow variety in foods served. The menus are posted in the reception area. Children who are on a special diet or who are allergic to a particular food item, such as milk products, must bring a note from a physician explaining the requirements of the child’s diet and approved substitutes. Meals are served family style. For infant meal patterns, please see the staff in your child’s room.

Any food that is served to the children must be purchased and prepared by the Child Development Program. Children should not bring drink or food to eat into the program. This is an environmental health sanitation and safety measure as well as an AFI 24-248 policy to protect the children.
