USDA Standardize Recipes

The Child Nutrition Recipe Box provides Child Nutrition program operators with recipes to prepare healthy and delicious meals that meet meal pattern requirements. These recipes are standardized to provide meal pattern crediting information for all meal pattern components and include recipes made with legumes, whole grains, and vegetables from the vegetable subgroups including dark green, red, and/or orange vegetables. Browse recipes for the Child and Adult Care Food Programs (CACFP) and for school nutrition programs.
