We continuously work to improve the quality and nutrition standards of the foods we serve. School meals offer students milk, fruits and vegetables, proteins and grains, and they must meet strict limits on saturated fat and portion size. We are fully compliant with the new healthier US regulations. They include:
- Age-appropriate calorie limits
- Larger servings of vegetables and fruits (students must take at least one serving of produce)
- A wider variety of vegetables, including dark green and red/orange vegetables and legumes
- Fat-free or 1% milk (flavored milk must be fat-free)
- More whole grains and less sodium
- Less sodium
We are proud to offer our menus using Nutrislice, it is a web based application that shows parents the nutrient and allergy information for every menu item we produce. It is on the parent web page and also available as an app for both ios & adroid smart phones. Please check it out.
