U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Regulations

While school districts have some flexibility in what foods we offer to our students, we are required to plan our menus in accordance with guidelines set by the USDA.

Effective beginning the 2012-2013 school year, the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 has brought changes to menu items and to meal selections in the cafeteria. These new regulations reflect the Institute of Medicine's report: "School Meals: Building Blocks for Healthy Children" and the USDA's 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. These guidelines are designed to increase the consumption of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, reduce the sodium and fat content of items served, and provide appropriate portion sizes for each age group.

These guidelines translate into the following changes in the cafeteria:

  • Students are required to take at least 1/2 cup of fruit/vegetable with every lunch and 1/2 cup of fruit at breakfast
  • All grain products are whole grain rich
  • Minimum and maximum ranges for calories, saturated fat, and sodium based on grade groupings
