    Attention Food Industry Partners:

    The newly revised Child Nutrition (CN) Labeling Manual is now available online!

    The CN Labeling 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 meat, meat alternate, poultry, and seafood products make toward the Child Nutrition Programs (CNP) meal pattern requirements. The revised CN Labeling Manual combines three existing manuals into one comprehensive resource with updated information.

    A CN label is approved by USDA and provides a way for a manufacturer to demonstrate how a processed food product contributes to the meal pattern requirements in CNP.

    Access the CN Labeling Manual here 

    In addition, food manufacturers and CNP operators can find other CN label-related resources at the CN Labeling Program website, which includes policy guidance and technical assistance.
