Title: ●Child and Adult Care Food Program: Meal Pattern Revisions; Grains Ounce Equivalents: Delayed Implementation 

Grain is a required component at breakfast, lunch, and supper meals and an optional component at snack in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). The "The Child and Adult Care Food Program: Meal Pattern Revisions Related to the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010” specified that, consistent with the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans , grains must be credited using ounce equivalents.” This action will extend the deadline of crediting grains by ounce equivalents to October 1, 2021, to provide additional time for training and technical assistance to meal planners nationwide.
