Collaborative Training - Cooking Matters and Nourish

CACFP has partnered with Cooking Matters and Nourish for three exciting online training opportunities. Trainings will be two hours long and be held in January, February, and March of 2021. Participants will attend a live, online training on CACFP whole grain-rich and sugar limit requirements and then be asked to choose a learning pathway. A recording of the alternative pathway will be available. 

Part One:

  • How to properly identify and meet CACFP recommendations for whole grain-rich and sugar limits in yogurt and cereal. 

Part Two: Choose a Learning Pathway

  • No More Mealtime Meltdowns: Working with Picky Eaters OR 
  • Sharpen your Knife Skills: Cutting Fresh Vegetables with Confidence. 

Register here to attend. 

Participants will be sent a box of training tools, incentives, and a grocery gift card ten days prior to the scheduled training.
