The Early Childcare Cookbook



When we first came out with our “Using CACFP Guidelines to Build a Healthy School Menu” training, the biggest question we were asked was “do you have recipes?”. The information we were providing during the training was helpful, but what attendees really wanted was a practical solution to meal planning in early childcare. They were looking for healthy, kid-friendly recipes that also met CACFP requirements for reimbursement. And so, The Early Childcare Cookbook was born. 

Early in the project we partnered with an Early Childhood expert who knew the ins and outs of the food program, running an early childcare center, and had in depth experience with feeding many tiny food critics. Next, we partnered with a chef who understood recipe development, feeding amazing food to large crowds, and food cost analysis. Together with our nutrition expertise, we think we’ve created something that you will not only love, but something that will become a part of your everyday life

We understand and appreciate the importance of your work with young children. We hope that our little book can help make meal planning a little easier, so you can focus on the things that truly matter: caring for, educating, and nourishing the next generation.
