The new meal pattern will see the following changes:
1. More fruits and vegetables offered each day.
2. Students MUST select at least one fruit or vegetable each day with their meal.
3. A red/orange vegetable MUST be offered each week, such as
tomatoes, sweet potatoes or carrots.
4. Salads must be prepared with a dark, green leafy lettuce, such
romaine lettuce or spinach.
5. Only lowfat white and nonfat flavored milk is to be offered.
6. Dried beans or legumes MUST be offered at least once a week.
7. Calorie levels for the different grade levels will be monitored.
8. Sodium levels for the different grade levels will be monitored.
9. At least ½ of the breads/grains offered each week must be whole
