Crediting Foods in the ASP Meal Pattern for Grades K-12

Note: The ASP meal pattern for grades K-12 applies only to school year 2024-25 and expires on June 30, 2025. Effective July 1, 2025, the USDA final rule, Child Nutrition Programs: Meal Patterns Consistent with the 2020-2025 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, aligns the ASP meal pattern for grades K-12 with the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) snack meal pattern requirements, except that the NSLP and SBP weekly juice limit and NSLP and SBP weekly whole grain-rich (WGR) requirement apply. The crediting changes for each meal component are indicated in the applicable sections below.
