From the Cooks
Parents/Guardians are welcome to join their child for breakfast or lunch. Please call the school the day before you plan to join us and tell us what your meal preference is.
The District's Wellness Policy forbids fast-food meals to be brought into school for breakfast or lunch. Meals from McDonald's, Hardee's, etc. would violate this policy.
Healthy Changes in the School Cafeteria
During the 2014-2015 school year, the Unit #1 school cafeterias are continuing to meet tough new federal nutrition standards for school meals, ensuring that meals are healthy and well-balanced, and provide students all of the nutrition they need to succeed at school. Now is a great time to encourage your kids to choose school lunch!
School meals offer students milk, fruits and vegetables, proteins and grains, and they must meet strict limits on saturated fat and portion size. During the School Year 2014-2015, school lunches will meet additional standards requiring:
- Age-appropriate calorie limits
- Larger servings of vegetables and fruits (students must take at least one serving of produce)
- A wider variety of vegetables, including dark green and red/orange vegetables and legumes
- Fat-free or 1% milk (flavored milk must be fat-free)
- More whole grains
- And less sodium
