“Child nutrition programs” is an overarching term used to describe the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food and Nutrition Service (USDA-FNS) programs that provide food for children in school or institutional settings. This book presents an overview of the benefits and services these programs and related activities provide as well as participation and funding information. The book emphasizes details for the school meals programs and provides an orientation to the operations of the other programs. Moreover, this book analyzes school lunch and breakfast programs, which account for more than 80 percent of all spending for child nutrition programs.
