Food Services - New School Meal Requirements
School Meals are Changing!
You may have heard that there will be new requirements for school meals. The new requirements are great news for our students! They will help us build on the work we are already doing to provide more fruits, vegetables, whole grains and healthier main dishes in our school cafeterias.
Some of the New Requirements Include:
Schools are now limited on how much meat/meat alternate and grains that can be offered. This means that some of the main dishes may not be as large as they have been in the past, or needed to be eliminated all together. We have already made progress toward meeting the new requirements.
What We Are Already Doing:
How Can You Help?
The school nutrition program needs your support to succeed! You are a powerful role model for your children and this is a great opportunity to model healthy choices.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Food and Nutrition office.
