Are expenses for food provided by my daycare eligible under the Dependent Care FSA?

Although food (such as a lunch program) may be reimbursable in certain circumstances, such as where the expense is incident to and inseparable from the cost of care for the qualifying individual, food expenses are typically not reimbursable. Where the food is charged to the parent as a separate, delineated expense, the IRS does not allow that expense to be reimbursed on a tax-free basis.
