The Child Nutrition (CN) Labeling Manual  published


Feb 28, 2024

The USDA Food and Nutrition Service has published The Child Nutrition (CN) Labeling Manual.

The Manual provides food manufacturers with instructions on how to apply for and obtain approval for a CN label. It also contains instructions for calculating the contribution that meats, meat alternates, poultry, and seafood products make toward the meal pattern requirements for Child Nutrition Programs (CNP).

The Child Nutrition (CN) Labeling Program requires an evaluation of a product’s formulation to determine its contribution toward Child Nutrition Programs (CNP) meal pattern requirements. It allows manufacturers to state this contribution on their labels. The existence of a CN label on a product provides CNP operators with a guarantee that the product contributes to the meal pattern requirements as printed on the product label.
