USDA PROPOSES HEALTHIER FARE


For the first time in nearly 50 years, USDA is proposing an overhaul to the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) that includes more vegetables and less sugar . The guidelines were developed with guidance by experts in order to stem rising child obesity rates. The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 called for such changes. The program feeds about 3.8 million young children, and 120,000 elderly or disabled adults daily through day-care centers and senior programs.
