This training is intended for those responsible for menu planning in child care settings as well as Head Start, ECEAP, Emergency Shelters, At-Risk Programs, and family day care home sponsors. Training for adult care programs will be provided separately at a later date. School district food service staff who will receive training through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) do not need to attend this training. This training is mandatory for all other institutions.
