What Makes Up Today's School Meals?
School meals today are not what they used to be when many of us were children in school. Today, students are given choices of the foods they want to consume through a program called "Offer vs Serve" and a variety of fresh fruit and vegetables are offered daily.Breakfast: All 4 items are offered; students can elect to choose any 3 for a reimbursable meal. Less than 3 will result in a la carte pricing.Milk - one 8 oz. servingFruit or Juice - 1 service1 Grain and 1 Meat OR 2 Grains OR 2 MeatsLunch: For a reimbursable meal students must select 3-5 different components but one must include a fruit or vegetable.
