The best/easiest way to keep track of food for daycare is to use the standard IRS allowance for meals. The standard allowance for meals is:

Breakfast: $1.19
Lunch: $2.21
Snack: $0.66

Do you use MMK for submitting for the food program? There's a place in there where you can print out a copy of all meals you claimed on the food program and what type of meals (lunch, snack, etc).

As far as keeping receipts, you will want to do that for anything 100% dc related (like wipes/diapers, if you don't have your own children in dipes), or anything you can t/s like cleaning supplies, toilet paper, paper towels, etc.
