NUTRITION in The National School Lunch Program
The National School Lunch Program makes it possible for all school children in the U.S. to receive a nutritionally balanced meal every school day.
School Lunches must meet the following federal nutrition standards:
- No more than 30% of an individual's calories come from Fat
- Less than 10% from Saturated Fat
- NO Artificial Trans Fat
- One-third of the Recommended Daily Allowances for key nutrients.
In our School Cafeterias we also serve many Whole Grain items and plenty of fresh Fruits and Vegetables. Some of our delicious whole grain and reduced fat items include "Schwann's Big Daddy's Pizza" and "Otis Spunkmeyer Cookies". These foods can now be considered healthier choices.
In the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs, our objective is to plan weekly menus that meet the State and Federal nutrition goals when averaged over a school week. This means all nutrients for each weeks menu (Monday through Friday) are counted together and then calculated for an average of Calories, Total Fat, Saturated Fat, Carbohydrates, and other key nutrients.
Meals in the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs provide 1/3 of the total recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for lunch and 1/4 of the total recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for breakfast, in the appropriate levels for the ages/grades of the students.
