This fall, school cafeterias will continue meeting tough new federal nutrition standards for school meals, ensuring that meals are well-balanced and provide students all the nutrition they need to succeed at school.
School meals offer students milk, fruits and vegetables, proteins and grains, and they must meet strict limits on saturated fat and portion size. Effective with the 2013-2014 school year, school meals were required to meet the following standards:
ο Age-appropriate calorie limits
ο Larger servings of vegetables and fruits (students must take at least one serving of produce)
ο A wider variety of vegetables, including dark green and red/orange vegetables and legumes
ο Fat-free or 1% milk (flavored milk must be fat-free)
ο More whole grains
ο Less sodium

We offer a Gluten Free menu for any child in our district who has an intolerance to Gluten. Our menus are supplied with entrees such as flour, starch, bread, and pasta that are gluten free. If your child is in need of a gluten free meal you must have a medical statement form completed by your family physician and returned to the school nurse. The statement must include identification of the medical condition which restricts the diet, the foods to be omitted from the child's diet, and an allowable list of food substitutions.
