What is included in a complete lunch meal?

To see what makes up a complete lunch meal, see the charts below for your student’s grade level. Our staff tries to ensure that your child chooses the items he/she wants, while still maintaining federal guidelines for a complete meal.

 

All student meals MUST have a FRUIT or VEGETABLE on the tray. 

Students may decline 2 of the 5 meal components – Meat, Grain, Fruit, Vegetable and Milk -
but cannot decline BOTH Fruit and Vegetable.

 

Milk choices include:   0% flavored, 1% unflavored & 0% unflavored.

The meal is priced as a unit, regardless if student selects 3, 4,or 5 items.
