2012: NEW Nutrition Standards

Why are changes coming to our school lunches?

slide8

USDA developed new meal patterns to improve the health of all children

  • Like the MyPlate icon for families, these changes are based on the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
  • They are designed to comply with new nutrition standards mandated by the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010.
  • They will help children maintain a healthy weight and get enough of the nutrients that they are missing, like calcium, vitamin D, potassium, and fiber.
slide10

New meal patterns continue ongoing school nutrition improvements

Montana schools have been making numerous healthful changes to school meals and winning national awards over the past 5 years.

We have added more fruit, vegetables, and local foods to our lunch program (and added produce snacks with our Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program).

We have increased whole grains and decreased sodium, while making sure that our food tastes great.

new meal patterns
NEW MEAL PATTERNS
  • Specific grade specific portion sizes (K-5; 6-8; 9-12)
  • Minimum and maximum servings of grains and protein foods to meet caloric needs of school-aged children
  • Emphasis on serving more whole grains, larger variety of vegetables, and fruits
  • Low-fat and fat free milk requirements
  • Each reimbursable meal must have at least ½ cup of a fruit or vegetable on it.

2012: NEW Lunch Patterns

How will our school lunch look different next year?

slide14

Lunch trays will look a little different starting in the 2012-2013 school year

The goal over the next few years is to have all school lunch trays meet the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and look like USDA’s MyPlate icon.

Students will receive lunches with a balance of calories and food components that are right for their age group.

Students will be served more fruits, vegetables, and whole grains and will have a choice between fat-free and low-fat milk.

slide15

Lunches will offer greater variety & value with more fruits & vegetables

School lunches will have more fruits and vegetables, with these two groups making up half the food on a tray.

We will be offering a greater variety of brightly colored vegetables, like more dark green broccoli and more red tomatoes, than ever before.

Every student who eats a reimbursable lunch will be required to take at least ½ cup of fruits and/or vegetable.

slide16

Award-winning meals that help kids be fit, healthy, and ready to learn

One more step to achieve student health and educational goals that we are all working toward

One more way to help Montana schools continue to win national recognition

slide17

High-quality, safe, delicious meals for hungry children

Continued commitment to the best possible nutrition and food safety standards for our children, every day

School meals are a great value for families – with even more fruits and vegetables than ever before
