Delayed Implementation of Grains Ounce Equivalents in the Child and Adult Care Food Program
Document Number: 2019-13733
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2019-07-01
Agency: Department of Agriculture, Food and Nutrition Service
This action proposes to delay, from October 1, 2019 until October 1, 2021, the implementation date of the ``ounce equivalents'' requirement for crediting grains served in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). The final rule, Child and Adult Care Food Program: Meal Pattern Revisions Related to the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, published at 81 FR 24347 on April 25, 2016, specified that meal planners must use ounce equivalents to determine the amount of creditable grain served as part of a reimbursable meal or snack. The new implementation date would allow more time for FNS to develop additional technical assistance materials and for State agencies and sponsoring organizations to provide training and technical assistance to make compliance easier for meal planners nationwide.
