Introduction to the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) is a training made specifically for family and group home day care providers. The CACFP is an important program that helps ensure children are eating nutritious foods and developing habits to support lifelong nutrition. This training consists of three modules. Module 1 will go over the basics of the program: the “who, what, when, where, why and how.” Module 2 will cover how to get involved in the program and what you can expect when you start participating. Module 3 is all about how to get the maximum benefits out of participating. Participants will have access to helpful resources and links to support their participation in the food program.

This training was developed by the Illinois Public Health Institute with support from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention and Illinois Department of Public Health.
