Breakfast Promotion


 The nutritional integrity of school meals has always been a priority, and the school system is meeting the challenges set forth in the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act. School lunches must meet tough federal standards that require

  • age-appropriate calorie limits
  • larger servings of vegetables and fruits (Students are required to take at least one fruit or vegetable.)
  • wider variety of vegetables, including dark green vegetables, red/orange vegetables and legumes (Cooked and fresh versions will be offered daily.)
  • fat-free or 1 percent milk (Whole milk and 2 percent milk will not be available.)
  • more whole grains (At least 80% of all the grains in school meals must be whole grains.)
  • minimum and maximum levels for all grain products and protein products
  • less sodium

Here are just a few menu items that make school breakfasts and lunches healthy and nutritious:

  • whole-grain rolls, biscuits, buns and pizza crust
  • fresh fruit ,cupped fruit in natural or extra-light syrup
  • Salads
  • reduced-fat dressings
  • baked fries
  • whole-grain breading on chicken and nuggets
  • 100% beef and reduced-fat burgers
  • low-fat and fat-free milk
