Federal nutrition standards ensure that school meals are well-balanced and provide students all the nutrition they need to succeed. The meals served in our schools include lots of fresh fruits and vegetables, low-fat milk, and whole grains. USDA's standards further ensure:
- Age-appropriate calorie limits
- Larger servings of vegetables and fruits (students must take at least one serving of produce)
- A guaranteed variety of vegetables, including dark green, red/orange, and starchy vegetables and legumes
- Fat-free or 1% milk
- More whole grains
- Less Sodium
And we take quality seriously. We cook from scratch and use "whole" foods as often as possible. We employ two certified chefs and train all of our staff to prepare food that looks and tastes great. Now is a great time to encourage your kids to choose school meals!
