Grains are an important part of meals in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP). To make sure children and adults get enough grains at CACFP meals and snacks, required amounts for the grains component are listed in the meal pattern as ounce equivalents (oz. eq.). Ounce equivalents tell you the amount of grain in a portion of food.

The recipes in the cookbook feature recipes to entice kids to eat and enjoy foods both children and adults should consume more of: dark green and orange vegetables, dry beans and peas, and whole grains.
