CACFP Member Resource

How to have a CACFP Birthday

Bad news? Birthday cake isn't creditable. Good news? There's a rainbow of wonderful options that are creditable, and with a little creativity (and this handy resource from your friends at NCA), the children in your program will still feel special on their big day. This resource includes four creative, colorful and creditable recipes that are sure to make your participants smile. All of these can be made with ordinary ingredients and tools that you're likely to already have at your home or center. Ready to give it a shot? Update us with photos the next time you're celebrating a special day!
