The Two-Bite Club (English and Spanish)

This educational storybook, available in English and in Spanish, was developed to introduce MyPlate to young children. Parents or caregivers read the book to children and encourage them to try foods from each food group by eating just two bites, just like the characters in the story.

Results of the Feasibility Study of Estimating the Risk of Meal Claiming Error in the CACFP

Measuring erroneous meal claims in the Family Day Care Home (FDCH) component of the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) poses great difficulty. FDCH providers report meal service counts, by day, at the end of each month but do not submit independent objective documentation to confirm the accuracy of the reports. Therefore, the Food and Nutrition Service’s 2006 Improper Payments Information Act (IPIA) plan for the CACFP proposed to test the feasibility of estimating the risk of errors. The Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) proposed to select a random sample of sponsoring organizations and, from each, use a random selection of the sponsor’s monitoring visits of FDCHs.1 Using these data, FNS would compare the number of meals claimed with the number of children observed at the time of the visit.
