UNDERSTANDING SCHOOL MEALS
School meals are a healthy option, great value, and convenient for busy families!
- The National School Lunch's Breakfast Program (NSLP and SBP) are federally funded programs providing nutritionally balanced meals to children each school day.
- The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act (HHFKA) ensures that meals are healthy and well balanced and provides students with all the nutrition they need to succeed at school. The good news is that much of the components of the HHFKA final ruling have already been in place in our school programs for some time, such as: whole grain offerings, variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, focus on lean protein choices, smart snack options, fat-free and low-fat milk, and reduced sodium content.
- All student meals include: Protein Choice, Fresh Vegetable Choice, Grain Choice, Fruit Choice, and Milk Choice.
