NutriStudents K-12 is pleased to provide #MenuFreedom for childcare (Ages 3-5) and adult care programs that serve meals under the USDA's Child and Adult Care Food Program. You now have access to a deeper library of USDA-compliant menu weeks - full 30 weeks of lunch menus. These menus feature a wide variety of entrees that appeal to all ages. You can mix and match the weeks, choosing the weeks your staff and your consumers like best, using them in any order. We know that providing food in a child or adult care setting often has staff juggling programming as well as food prep and serving. If that sounds like your program, then you'll gravitate to the menu weeks that are easier to prepare than others.
Just like our menu weeks for the National School Lunch Program, the CACFP recipes can be instantly scaled to the number of servings you need using our new CookBook and easily output those recipes by the day or week. And, as always, each menu week comes with the necessary compliance reports: weekly calendar menus and verification reports, and daily food production reports for downloading.
You can access all our CACFP menus within the client portal under the "Lunch" tab. To preview the recipes for a given day, simply click on the photo on your desired menu page. If you have any questions, contact us via the chatbot to the left or via email.
