Breakfast is designed to supply approximately 1/4 of the vitamins, minerals, protein, carbohydrates and fat needed daily by the body. Lunch is designed to supply approximately 1/3 of the same nutrients. The nutritional value of the meals is evaluated over a period of days rather than calculated on a single meal or food item. Children are required to take a fruit or vegetable as part of the meal. This is required by USDA as part of the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.
The sale of Foods of Minimal Nutritional Value (FMNV) is prohibited in the entire school during the school day per federal regulations.
Parents are welcome to join their child for school lunch. Lunch requests can be made to your cafeteria manager or school’s front office staff. We discourage parents bringing in food other than a home packed lunch.
