OUR COMMITTMENT TO GOOD NUTRITION FOR YOUR KIDS KEEPS MOVING FORWARD

MEAL PATTERN:  Helping Build a Healthier Student Body

Food and Nutrition Services recognizes the important connection between a healthy diet and a student's ability to learn effectively and achieve high standards in school.  As a part of our commitment to help build a healthier student body, our department ensures that all menus meet the required nutrient levels for specific grade groups.  Many positive changes have been made to the meals our students are offered as a result of the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010.  The selections offered focus on meeting the new standards for sodium, calories, saturated fat and trans-fat.  In addition, we ensure that menus, when averaged over the week, provide the amount of grains and proteins within the allowable ranges.

New regulations require menu items to be categorized into five (5) food components:  Fruits, Vegetables, Grains, Protein, and Milk.  Each day, students are offered a variety of items from each food component.  These changes mean students will have more choices of fresh fruits and vegetables available daily.  We offer locally grown produce when available and affordable.  They will also have protein, whole grains and low-fat or fat free milk choices.  All menus will continue to be nutritionally analyzed to ensure compliance within the new stricter guidelines.

BREAKFAST MEAL PATTERN-ALL GRADE LEVELS

The components for breakfast are: Fruits, Grains, Protein, and Milk.  In order to receive breakfast at the established meal prices, students must select at least three (3) of the four (4) components offered, with one component being a fruit.  Students may select one (1) item from each of the four (4) components offered, without incurring unexpected a la carte charges.  The meal price is the same whether students select three (3) or four (4) components.  Therefore, we recommend that students select four (4) components to help ensure they are getting the nutrients their bodies need in the morning.

LUNCH MEAL PATTERN-ALL GRADE LEVELS

The components fro lunch are:  Fruits, Vegetables, Grains, Protein, and Milk.  In order to receive lunch at the established meal prices, a student must select at least three (3) different components, one (1) of the selections must be a fruit or vegetable.  The price is the same whether the student chooses only three (3) components or all five (5).
