Our responsibility to children l.jpg
Our Responsibility to Children

“Schools have the unique opportunity – even the responsibility – to teach and model healthful eating and physical activity, both in theory and in practice… Therefore, schools have a vested interest in improving the nutrition and increasing the physical activity of their students.”

~Dr. Satcher, former U.S. Surgeon General and founding chair of Action for Healthy Kids.

What was the reasoning behind the criteria l.jpg

Voluntary

Self certification as the first step

Simple—based on practices rather than nutrient analysis

Easy for State agency to validate

But the bar was set high enough to recognize schools who truly excel

What was the reasoning behind the criteria?

Adp is 70 or higher blue handout page 5 l.jpg
ADP is 70% or Higher(Blue Handout, Page 5)

  • October is the Typical Month Used

    • Divide the number of reimbursable meals served in the month by the number of days meals were served

    • Divide this number by school enrollment

    • Result is a decimal, so multiply by 100

  • Example: 20,000 lunches, 20 days, 1200 students enrolled:

    • 20,000 meals / 20 days meals served = 1000 meals

    • 1000 meals/day / 1200 enrollment = 0.83

    • 0.83 X 100 = 83%

5a emphasis on selection rule43 l.jpg
5a. EMPHASIS ON SELECTION RULE

  • See “Note” on Blue Handout, Page 3

  • “For each day and each menu criteria, every child must have the opportunity toselect a meal that meets all criteria”

  • Can’t use all foods offered to meet menu criteria, if not all foods can be selected

  • Consider your Menu Pattern

    • How many Entrées or Meat/Meat Alternates?

    • How many sides or fruit/vegetables are allowed?


5a emphasis on selection rule44 l.jpg
5a. EMPHASIS ON SELECTION RULE

EXAMPLE 1

  • If your meal pattern allows one entrée, you can not meet one requirement, such as iron with one entrée and another requirement, such as vitamin C with another entrée.

  • The student would not have the opportunity to select a vitamin C rich food and an iron rich food if they could only take one (1) entree


5a emphasis on selection rule45 l.jpg
5a. EMPHASIS ON SELECTION RULE

EXAMPLE 2

  • If your pattern allows only 2 sides or 2 fruits and vegetables, you can not count one fruit as your “fresh”, a juice for Vitamin C and a third item to meet orange/dark green criteria

  • Because the student is only allowed to select 2 from the sides or Fruits and Vegetables they would not be allowed to take 3 items to meet 3 of the criteria.


5b emphasis on whole grains green handout page 10 and yellow handout l.jpg
5b. EMPHASIS ON WHOLE GRAINS(Green Handout, Page 10 and Yellow Handout)
