I'm not an expert, but my way of thinking is, if she was in your care, she would have had to eat at your house. Do you have a sign in sheet that you can look back on to figure out how many meals per day she was fed in your care? I would think that as long as you have some way to prove that she was there for the meals that you are claiming, you should be fine.

Editing to answer the actual question...LOL: As far as writing down/keeping track of every single food that you offered her, I don't believe you need to do that unless you are on the food program.
