Healthy Changes in Our School Cafeterias!

Dear Hickman County Families,

This fall, Hickman County school cafeterias are meeting tough new federal nutrition standards for school meals, ensuring that meals are healthy and well-balanced and provide students all the nutrition they need to succeed at school. Now is a great time to encourange 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. Starting in School Year 2012-2013, 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 varitey of vegetables, including dark green and red/orage vegetables and legumes
* Fat-free or 1% milk (flavored milk must be fat-free)
* More whole grains
* And less sodium

We’re always working to offer Hickman County students healthier and tastier choices.

We look forward to welcoming your children to the cafeteria this fall. To find out more about Hickman County’s healthy school meals, keep check on this website or call 729-3391, ext. 7, and to get the facts about school meals visit www.TrayTalk.org.

Thank you!
