Anthony Wayne Food Service Department Announces Healthy Snacks/Breakfasts
Nutrition requirements for foods and beverages throughout the district continue to be in compliance. It is a yearly requirement that I certify to the Board of Education that all standards are being met. 99% of a la carte items offered are from the Alliance for a Healthier Generation list approved by USDA. There will be revised standards beginning next school year. I have completed two webinars on “Smart Snacks in Schools” and made the necessary changes to all a la carte items we serve, both on the serving line during lunch and through the vending machines. New calorie levels and sodium levels must be met in addition to fats and sugar percentages. Each food item must be at least one of protein, fruit, vegetable, dairy or 50% whole grain. Beverage standards will not affect us. Current items offered will continue without change and remain in compliance.
Beginning August 21st 2014 a breakfast program will begin at Monclova, Waterville and Whitehouse schools. It will be a grab and go style of breakfast. From 8:30 to 8:40 a.m students can come through the cafeteria serving line grab their breakfast, pay with their account and take it to the classroom. There is a flyer on the food service website that explains the menu. This program will be monitored throughout the year and the department is open to suggestions. If your child qualifies for free lunch they would also qualify for free breakfast. Reduced students will pay .30 cents for breakfast and all other students will pay $1.30. The meal includes an entree, cup of fruit and 8 oz 1% white milk.
