Grains are an important part of meals and snacks served in the CACFP. To ensure participants in your program receive enough grains during meals and snacks, the required minimum serving size for the grains component is listed in the meal patterns charts in ounce equivalents. Ounce equivalents tell you the amount of grain in a portion of food.
