What's in a School Meal?
School meals offer students milk, fruits and vegetables, proteins and grains – and they must meet strict limits on saturated fat and portion size. Starting this fall, school lunches throughout the county will meet additional standards, including:
• Age-appropriate calorie limits for elementary, middle and high school meals.
• Larger servings of veggies and fruits: Students must take at least one serving (½ cup) of fruits or vegetables with their school lunch at all grade levels.
• A wider variety of vegetables, including offerings of dark green and red/ orange vegetables and legumes.
• Fat-free or 1% milk will be offered, with flavored milk only available fat-free!
• More whole grains: Greater than 51% of bread items offered in school cafeterias will now be whole grain.
• Target 1 sodium requirements in the 9-12 age group for school lunch 1420 mg. sodium.
