School Nutrition

HEALTHY CHANGES IN OUR SCHOOL CAFETERIAS!!

The Macon County School System 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. All students eat breakfast and lunch free of charge in the Macon County Schools.

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 must 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

· Less sodium
