Importance of School Meals
Research shows that students who participate in the school meal programs consume more milk, fruits, and vegetables during meal times and have better intake of certain nutrients, such as calcium and fiber, than nonparticipants. All of our meals meet or exceed the federal government's standards for school meals, which were revised in 2012 to include more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and decrease the amount of sodium and trans fat.
