CACFP Crediting Handbook 

The Crediting Handbook for the Child and Adult Care Food Program is designed by the USDA to be a companion to the Food Buying Guide.  This handbook is a source to help determine creditable foods allowed in the CACFP.  The list of creditable and non-creditable foods in this publication is not all-inclusive.  This publication includes only those foods that are commonly served in child care programs and foods USDA has received inquiries about or has noted as being credited incorrectly.
