KidKare Simplifies Compliance
for Food Program Management

Participating in the Food Program takes a lot of time & energy. From attendance to meal counts to milk audits & more, it can be hard to keep track of everything, but with the help of KidKare, the process is much simpler.

FEATURES:
Take the hassle out of meal counts

Attendance & meal counts are the heart of the Food Program—this is how you get reimbursed.

With two simple clicks, you can quickly & accurately record meal counts & attendance on KidKare.

Create & record Food Program approved menus in minutes

You can plan all menus for the day, estimate attendance to see estimated required quantities, and print menu production records from the same page.

Plus KidKare contains a wide range of CACFP-approved food ready to be included in your menus.

Spend less time on Food Program claim calculations

Save time and energy by automating claim calculation process and ensuring the accuracy of the generated reports.

With KidKare, your center can spend less time on manual calculations and tedious paperwork.

Be on track of milk purchases

Make informed decisions on your milk inventory: when to restock and how much to purchase to prevent potential milk shortage.

Enroll kids with KidKare eForms

Send, receive, and store enrollment paperwork online, eliminating the need for paper forms and manual processes.

Switch to automated claim reports

You will no longer have to manually calculate your claims. Our software runs over 200 edit checks to ensure everything is accurate and error-free.

How does it work:
KidKare Food Program Software is a great help for you to participate in the Food Program, from enrollment of children to submitting your claims without errors to your state.

Take a look for yourself:

When enrolling children, you have choices: manually enter child information into KidKare, send eForms to parents, or import children.

Paper is taken out of the equation. 

Meal counts and attendance can be easily recorded on any device at point-of-service in each classroom.

Use the Milk Audit to compare the amount of milk purchased with the amount of milk needed, based on menus and meal counts.

Record infant and non-infant meals separately to meet meal pattern requirements for each.

Set up menu templates for even faster meal planning!

Be confident that your claims are error-free. Goodbye to costly mistakes.
