 Nutrition Program - Forms



Welcome to the CDA Nutrition Resources Library.

You can find and download forms designed to help you stay up to date on the most current CACFP guidance so that you are always operating within regulation. We post Nutrition Program Updates, CACFP Newsletters, and other important documents for you to view and download each month. If you are looking for a specific form that you do not see on the website, please contact the Nutrition Office.
Documents are sorted by type for easy reference. Not all forms are available in Spanish, but we welcome your call and will provide assistance to you in Spanish to help you complete any necessary forms.
National CACFP Week is March 11th - 17th. CDA would like to thank all of our wonderful Providers for helping to make our Nutrition Program amazing! Please accept this Certificate of Appreciation as a token of our gratitude. Thank You!

July 2017 - Great News from USDA: Providers will be able to continue being reimbursed for graham crackers and animal crackers after October 1, 2017! After much consideration, the USDA revised the new rule to exclude graham and animal crackers from the grain-based desserts category for the CACFP. All other previously determined grain-based dessert items (cookies, sweet pie crusts, doughnuts, cereal bars, breakfast bars, granola bars, sweet rolls, toaster pastries, cake, and brownies) are still on the list and will not be reimbursable.

Fluid Milk Substitution (Milk Alternate) Requirements and Procedures
Soymilk is currently the only type of fluid milk substitute that meets the federal requirements, but not all soymilk brands/flavors are reimbursable. Additionally, providers will not be reimbursed for any milk alternate offered without proper documentation on file in the Nutrition Office. This Milk Alternate Guide  outlines the requirements and procedures necessary for reimbursement, and includes a list of soymilk brands CDA will reimburse for that meet the USDA requirements.
