New Federal Meal Pattern:
For the first time in nearly two decades, the federal government has issued new nutrition standards
for meals served to America’s schoolchildren, based on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
For more information on the Dietary Guidelines, see ChooseMyPlate.gov.
Changes for 2014-15:
The new requirements include limits on calories, saturated fat, trans fat and sodium in school meals.
All lunches will include five meal components:
meat or meat alternate such as yogurt, lean beef, chicken or low-fat cheese
grain such as whole-wheat bread or brown rice
fruit selection; fresh or canned when the availability of fresh fruit is limited
vegetable; a variety of raw or cooked
milk selections ; low-fat or fat-free
Each child must select at least three of these five components on their tray to make a meal,
including a fruit or vegetable.
The biggest change is that children must select a fruit or a vegetable with their lunch every day.
Please explain these changes to your child before they arrive at school
and encourage them to try these new foods.
They just might find a new favorite!
