Prevent Deductions! Serve ONE (1) Whole Grain Each Day

 Starting October 1, 2018, facilities who do NOT have ONE whole grain recorded for the day (on days when a grain was required/served) will be deducted for the lowest paying meal or snack that has a grain on that day. Each time you serve a whole grain, make sure to record it to ensure you get credit.

Low Fat Milk Required for Ages 2 and Over

According to a new USDA requirement,  low fat milk (1% or skim) must be served to all children age 2 and older. 1 year olds must receive whole milk according to DCFS Regulations. Centers must be in compliance by October 1, 2011.

Start now to transition kids from high fat (whole and 2%) to low fat (1% or skim) milk! Low fat milk contains the same amount of bone-building nutrients as whole milk. However, switching from whole to 1% milk can reduce fat by 17 grams in one day!
