New Guidance Memos on Food Crediting Available


In a set of new memos, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) provides guidance on crediting various foods based on feedback from child nutrition professionals. In a December 2017 Request for Information, the agency sought public input about specific high interest foods. FNS asked whether and how these foods should credit, and looked for input on ingredients, processing methods or nutrient standards that the agency should consider. In its response to the request, SNA supported the crediting of these high interest foods and provided additional feedback on the food crediting system.
