Webinar: Understanding Grain-Based Desserts

May 17, 2023

Understanding GBD 4x3

Wondering why savory biscotti, rice pudding, and scones are creditable in the CACFP, but the same items made with fruits are considered to be sweet and are not allowed for reimbursement under the meal pattern?

Grain-based desserts are a category of food items that are considered sweet and high in sugar. By eliminating grain-based desserts in the CACFP, USDA hopes to reduce the amount of added sugars kids eat in child care. While brownies clearly fall in the grain-based desserts category, other food items can be tricky.

Join us for this webinar to learn how to determine what is creditable and what is not based on the USDA guidance.
