Abstract: The development of the Child Nutrition (CN) Database is regulated by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), Food and Nutrition Service. This database is designed to be incorporated in USDA-approved nutrient analysis software and provide an accurate source of nutrient data. The software allows schools participating in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and School Breakfast Program (SBP) to analyze meals and measure the compliance of the menus to established nutrition goals and standards specified in 7 CFR 210.10 for the NSLP and 7 CFR 220.8 for the SBP. The information collection for the CN Database is conducted using an outside contractor. The CN Database is updated annually with brand name or manufactured foods commonly used in school food service. To update and expand the CN Database, collection of this information is accomplished by form FNS–710, CN Database Qualification Report. The Food and Nutrition Service’s contractor collects this data from the food industry through the paper form, an online Web Tool, or a spreadsheet (for bulk data submissions). The online Web tool is available at: https:// healthymeals.fns.usda.gov/online-webtool-submitting-nutrient-data-0. The paper form and online Web Tool were revised to add two nutrients, vitamin D and potassium, and to remove an obsolete ingredient list. The form was also edited to update terminology and instructions. The new spreadsheet version was developed to facilitate submission of bulk data. The burden should not be affected by these changes. The submission of data from the food industry will be strictly voluntary, and based on analytical, calculated, or nutrition facts label sources. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit (Manufacturers of food produced for schools.) Form: FNS–710. Estimated Number of Respondents: 32. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 35. Estimated Total Annual Responses: 1,120. Estimated Time per Response: 2.0 Hours. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 2,240 Hours.
