The Child and Adult Care Food Program: Evaluation of State Agency Websites
Despite its advantages to children and child care programs, CACFP is not used by many eligible providers, and little is known about their motivation to participate. The user-friendliness and quality of state CACFP agency websites is potentially one important factor influencing CACFP access in each state. This assessment aims to investigate a possible relationship between CACFP website quality scores and CACFP participation rates among licensed child care centers. Recommendations that may improve the user-friendliness of websites are also offered.
