meal pattern exception
Meal Pattern exception
  • Children with restricted dietary needs are not affected if a medical statement from a licensed physician is provided and on file at the school.
  • Without medical statement, the meal pattern is to be consistent with the new meal pattern
  • Pre-K students meal pattern has not been updated – Requirement is to follow existing meal pattern for this age group.
  • Identified in CFR 210.10(c)(2)(iii)
  • Other Vegetables are listed in 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans and in outline under http://www.ChooseMyPlate.gov
  • There is no specific sequence for serving vegetable subgroups during the week– this is at the discretion of the menu planner on when and how to offer the required subgroups
  • All subgroup vegetables must be itemized on the production record to ensure food components and food quantity meet meal pattern requirement for a reimbursable meal
vegetable subgroups
Vegetable Subgroups
  • Record on production records
  • Multiple lines – vegetable subgroups must be offered on each line to ensure subgroups are offered to all students each week
  • The subgroup can be divided up across the week provided the week’s menu meets the full subgroup requirement
  • Combined vegetables may credit if quantity of item is known

for example sautéed red and orange peppers with onions and mushrooms. Peppers must be at least 1/8 cup to credit

  • No maximum limits exist at lunch
fruit snack items
Fruit Snack items
  • 100% Fruit strips, fruit drops or other snack-type fruit or vegetable products – change in crediting---
    • Effective SY 13- these products no longer credit as part of the reimbursable meal
fruit and fruit juice
Fruit and Fruit Juice
  • Juice restriction– no more than one-half of total weekly fruit offered may be fruit juice.
  • Fruit and 100% fruit juice may be offered on the same day but the weekly limit for fruit juice cannot be exceeded
  • K-5 & 6-8 could offer ½ cup juice for one or two days provided that the total weekly juice offering does not exceed one half of the total fruit offerings for the entire week
  • Diluted juice is no longer allowed
  • Dried fruit with sugar coating is allowed – just be aware of calorie maximum allowances
meat meat alternate
Meat/Meat Alternate
  • No major changes
  • Beans/Peas can be credited as meat/meat alternate or vegetables in a meal but not both.
  • Tofu can be creditable as a meat/meat alternate in NSLP- 2.2 oz (1/4 c) with 5 grams of protein is creditable for 1 oz meat/meat alternate
  • Limit of 2 oz equivalent or less of grain based desserts are allowed per week.
  • Grain based products are considered whole grain rich if water is listed as the first ingredient and whole grain is listed as the second ingredient on the ingredient label.
  • Breading on meat/meat alternate is optional SY13 and must be counted in SY14 if the grains equal to or greater than

0.25 oz must be counted toward weekly grains

approved usda certification tools
Approved USDA Certification Tools
  • USDA approved tools include for the entire workbook and nutritional assessment tools
    • Simplified Nutrient Assessment Tool
    • Approved software is located on the USDA website


sde workbook changes
SDE Workbook Changes
  • Three changes were added and are required by USDA
    • Grain based desserts checkbox
    • Milk Tab
    • 100% Fruit Juice checkbox
    • Grain Based Desserts and Juice add components together and may exceed the actual planned requirement

If this happens, please send separate email when submitting to the SDE to support what the issue is.

Plans are to revise at a later date to prevent this from occurring

certification submission
Certification submission
  • SDE will evaluate the following documents using the SDE Breakfast/Lunch Certification Checklist
    • Breakfast- Menu with food based meal pattern k-12 (old)
    • Lunch-
      • Attestation Statement
      • SDE Certification of Compliance Checklist
      • Meal Pattern Workbooks by age/grade groups for each distinct menu
      • Menu
      • Nutritional assessment for each distinct menu
      • Nutritional analysis by daily menu and weekly summary of nutrients which includes Calories, Saturated Fat, Trans Fat totals


approval and reimbursement
Approval and Reimbursement
  • State agency must reimburse the certified SFA with the additional performance-based reimbursement for each lunch served beginning the start of the month in which the certified lunches are served, but not earlier than October 1, 2012.
  • For example, if certification documentation is submitted for October 15-19 and the SFA is certified by the State agency in December, the State agency must provide the additional performance-based reimbursement for all lunches served in that SFA on or after October 1.
  • State agencies will follow standard reimbursement procedures.
common certification errors
Common Certification Errors
  • Vegetables
  • Make sure that vegetables are in the correct subgroups
  • Example: green beans are not a dark green vegetable; hash browns are not an “other vegetable”
  • Vegetables that fit into subgroups can continue to be added to the appropriate subgroup after the minimum serving requirement has been met; or, they can be added to the additional vegetables group.
    • For example if red/orange subgroup requirement has been met, you may continue to add additional red/orange vegetables into the red/orange category, or, into the additional vegetables category to complete the total weekly requirement.
  • Vegetable Subgroups:

common certification errors1
Common Certification Errors
  • Grains
  • Refer to the bread grain chart to correctly identify oz equivalents for bread/grain items
    • Ex. 1 oz Pizza Dough is questionable if purchasing items from statewide bid
  • Correctly identify whole grain and not whole grain items
  • If entering multiple grain offerings planned to be included in one reimbursable meal, items should be entered on the same line and added together for the total daily oz equivalent.
    • For example: If the menu for the day includes a roll to be taken along with spaghetti, the items should be entered roll/whole wheat pasta beside the weekday. The same would be noted if Mexican rice was to be included as part of a burrito; the items would be entered Mexican rice/whole wheat tortilla.
    • However, the oz equivalent should be listed in the appropriate column depending on whether the item is whole grain or not whole grain.
  • Bread Grain Chart: http://www.nfsmi.org/documentlibraryfiles/PDF/20080207121438.pdf
  • NSLP Food Reference Chart (note grain symbol) for systems on state bid: https://docs.alsde.edu/documents/53/NSLP%20Food%20Reference%20Chart%2010-4-12.pdf
  • Please note that the NSLP Bread Grain Chart is in the process of being updated. The updated version will be released on the state website on 10-9-12.
  • Letter date October 5, 2012 
common certification errors2
Common Certification Errors
  • Meat/Meat Alternates
    • Enter the correct oz equivalents for meat and meat alternates
    • Ex. 1 oz meat patty is questionable
    • Food Buying Guide for Meat/Meat Alternates:
  • http://teamnutrition.usda.gov/Resources/FBG_Section_1-MeatAlternates.pdf
common certification errors3
Common Certification Errors
  • Resources for Nutrition Analysis
  • Nutrition analysis will be completed at the SFA level. For example, all K-5 schools using the same centralized menu in the district will be combined to complete the weighted nutrient analysis. Likewise all 6-8, 9-12, or K-8 schools following the same centralized menu will combine their numbers and perform a weighted nutrient analysis that encompasses all schools serving that age/grade group.
  • If multiple entrees are offered, separate nutrient analyses must be completed for each planned reimbursable meal.
    • For example, if there is a choice between lasagna and a hamburger as the main entrée with the same side items offered, a separate nutrient analysis must be performed for the reimbursable meal with the lasagna entrée as well as the reimbursable meal with the hamburger entrée, regardless of which item is offered in the highest planned amount.

common certification errors4
Common Certification Errors
  • Al l certification documents must be consistent and include the same food items for all documents submitted
  • For instance:
    • Menu  Meal pattern workbook  Nutritional Analysis
menu planning considerations
Menu Planning Considerations
  • Tested and accepted by students
  • Realistic for students to select ( items that compliment each other should be planned)
  • Use good menu planning practices ( marketing and merchandising)
  • Questions
