What’s for Breakfast and Lunch in District #833?

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  Nutrition Services provides breakfast and lunch in all buildings each and every day.  Breakfast consists of a grain/bread item, fruit, protein and milk.  All kindergartners and students who qualify for free or reduced meals are able to receive a breakfast free of charge

Lunches include a meat or meat alternate, milk, a grain/bread item, fruits and vegetables.  Of the 5 components, students must take 3 and of these components, one must be a fruit or veggie.  All schools have salad bars on a daily basis which provide many choices of fruits and vegetables, including locally grown items when available.  Choices may include romaine lettuce, cucumbers, red and green peppers, carrots, apples and much, much more. 

Foods purchased by Nutrition Services for school breakfast and lunch menus have been specially formulated for schools, which means the food items are lower in calories, sodium, fat and sugar.  As a result of the special formulation, it allows the menus to meet the nutrition requirements required by the USDA.
