Change in cheese product
The USDA Mountain Plains regional office has issued the following information memo to states in its region (Nebraska is included):
"It has come to our attention that the name on KRAFT® cheese spreads and cheese foods has changed to Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product.
Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product is not creditable for any food-based menu planning approach for the Child Nutrition Programs. "Cheese Product" has never been a creditable ingredient in the Child Nutrition Programs. Cheese spread and cheese foods are creditable as shown in the Food Buying Guide for Child Nutrition Programs."
