To comply with Federal Guidelines, all food must be prepared properly and menus must meet strict nutrition standards. Menus are planned by a team of child nutrition professionals, including two registered dietitians, to ensure that meals provide age-appropriate amounts of calories and nutrients.
Breakfast includes, milk, fruit or vegetable, bread/grains and/or a protein (meat/meat alternate). Lunch includes, milk, a variety of fruits and vegetables, bread/grains and protein. Students must take a serving of a fruit or vegetable at lunch to benefit from a complete meal and avoid paying a la carte prices.
