Impact of changes to the Child and Adult Care Food Program on children’s dietary intake in family child care homes


Our study’s aims were to (1) estimate dietary intake of 3– 5-year-old children attending Boston FCCHs that participate in CACFP, and (2) evaluate whether children’s dietary intake improved from before to after the change in meal pattern standards. We hypothesised that children’s intake of juice, sugary cereals and sugary yogurts would decrease; children’s intake of milk and meat/meat alternates would stay stable; and that children’s intake of fruits, vegetables and whole grains would increase in response to the new standards.
