Dear WNYMCS Family,
The School Nutritional Program is meeting new stringent but exciting federal nutrition standards for school meals. These new standards ensure that meals are healthy and well-balanced to provide students with all the nutrition they need to succeed in school.
The new standards set strict regulations for portion sizes yet offer a wide variety of different fruits, vegetables, proteins, and grains. Some of the new standards include:
- Portion sizes and calories individualized for each grade group (9-12).
- Fat-free or low-fat milk varieties.
- More whole-grain products such as breads, pastas, and rice.
- Students must select a minimum of 1 cup of fruit or vegetable on their tray at lunch.
We are always working to offer WNYMCS students healthy and nutritious school lunch choices. School meals are a great value and a huge convenience for busy families. Encouraging your child to choose a well-balanced school breakfast and lunch will teach them to make smart food choices and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
We look forward to serving your children. To find out more about healthy school meals and for more information about what's new in school nutrition, including the new federal regulations, visit http://www.traytalk.org or http://portal.nysed.gov/portal/page/pref/CNKC .
