Quick Guide to School Nutrition Programs
In order to meet USDA standards, school food service directors must assure that their nutrition program follows Federal and State–set rules and requirements. To better support the foodservice staff, here are some key points about school nutrition programs that principals should be aware of:
Vegetable subgroups — Weekly minimum portions of dark green, red/orange, starchy vegetables and legumes are required at lunch.
Discipline Policy – Students cannot be given an alternate meal as a method of discipline. This remains true even if the student is serving in-school suspension.
There are regulations pertaining to a la carte items, soda machines and fund-raising that must be followed.
Snacks- need to be eaten in school during the snack program and cannot be taken home.
Overt Identification- of kids who owe money, such as posted lists or loud announcements are not allowed.
Civil Rights Requirements – The ‘And Justice for All’ poster must be posted on the wall in the cafeteria. Also, the non-discrimination statement must be on all menus, as well as the school website.
Juice - cannot be a substitute for milk.
Water- needs to be available in the lunchroom or close enough to be accessible for all students during lunch.
Breakfast- must be implemented in any public school that has at least 15% or more free and reduced eligible children.
*Failure to comply with these requirements could result in the loss of the National School Lunch Program at your school.
