The current USDA Recipes for Child Care were updated to reflect the Food Safety and Inspection Service's (FSIS) recommendations for retail foodservice based on the current FDA Food Code. Further information concerning USDA Recipes for Child Care can be found here.
Also, included are the new Recipes for Healthy Kids (R4HK). The 30 recipes from the R4HK competition are credited to support the whole grain-rich, red/orange, dark green, and beans/peas (legumes) vegetable subgroups for the meal patterns as part of the Nutrition Standards in School Meal Programs. The 30 kid-approved recipes are designated with an "r" at the end of the recipe number. http://healthymeals.nal.usda.gov/hsmrs/R4HKCookbook
Funding for this project was provided by USDA/FNS through a cooperative agreement with ICN.
