Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act
Dear Parent/Guardian:

Students can expect benefits from healthier and more nutritious school meals.  Thanks to the Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act, major improvements are being made across the country to transform school food and to promote better nutrition and reduce childhood obesity.    The new meal pattern will see the following changes:

  • More fruits and vegetables offered each day.
  • Students must select at least one fruit or vegetable each day with their meal.      
  • A red/orange vegetable must be offered each week, such as tomatoes, sweet potatoes or carrots.  This can also be within a recipe.
  • Salads must be prepared with a dark, green leafy lettuce, such as romaine lettuce or spinach. 
  • Only lowfat white and nonfat flavored milk is to be offered.
  • Dried beans or legumes must be offered at least once a week. This can also be within a recipe.
  • Calorie levels for the different grade levels will be monitored.
  •  Sodium levels for the different grade levels will be monitored.
  • At least ½ of the breads/grains offered each week must be whole grain. 
We are excited to bring new foods and recipes to your child.   Eating a healthy school meal is a great foundation for a child’s education and future health.  

Sincerely,
 Food Service
