Abstract: The Child Nutrition (CN) Labeling Program is a voluntary technical assistance service to aid schools and institutions participating in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP), School Breakfast Program (SBP), Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), and Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) in determining the contribution toward the food-based meal pattern requirements of these programs. (See Appendix C to 7 CFR Parts 210, 220, 225, and 226 for more E:\FR\FM\12MRN1.SGM 12MRN1 tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 13982 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 48 / Wednesday, March 12, 2014 / Notices information on this program). The existence of a CN label on a product assures schools and other Child Nutrition Program operators that the product contributes to the meal pattern requirements as printed on the label. However, there is no Federal requirement that commercial products must have a CN label statement in order to be included in meals served by schools and institutions. AMS officially opened the CN Labeling Program Operations Office on January 19, 2010. To participate in the CN Labeling Program, a manufacturer submits a label application to AMS for evaluation. AMS reviews the product formulation to determine the contribution a serving of the product makes towards the foodbased meal pattern requirements. The application form submitted to AMS is the same application form that a manufacturer submits to the USDA’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) Labeling and Program Delivery Division for review of meat and poultry labels. Participation in the CN Labeling Program is voluntary and manufacturers who wish to place a CN label on their products must comply with CN Labeling Program requirements. Estimate of Burden: Public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 15 minutes per response. Respondents: Manufacturers who produce food for the school foodservice.

information on this program). The existence of a CN label on a product 
assures schools and other Child Nutrition Program operators that the 
product contributes to the meal pattern requirements as printed on the

label application to AMS for evaluation. AMS reviews the product 
formulation to determine the contribution a serving of the product 
makes towards the food-based meal pattern requirements. The application 
form submitted to AMS is the same application form that a manufacturer 
submits to the USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) 
Labeling and Program Delivery Division for review of meat and poultry 
labels. Participation in the CN Labeling Program is voluntary and 
manufacturers who wish to place a CN label on their products must 
comply with CN Labeling Program requirements.
    Estimate of Burden: Public reporting burden for this collection of 
information is estimated to average 15 minutes per response.
    Respondents: Manufacturers who produce food for the school 
foodservice.

proposed collection of information including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, 
utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) ways
