Default Recording Meals Not On Food Program

I use MMK but just dropped the food program - do I still need to keep as detailed records of the food served for standard tax purposes or can I do something more basic?

Default Food

It's a financial mistake to drop the Food Program. You are always better off financially if you are on the Food Program.

For tax purposes, you need to keep track of all the meals and snacks you served to each child, each day. This is true whether you are on the Food Program or not. You don't need to keep menus and you don't have to serve nutritious food if you are not on the Food Program.
