Production Record Prototypes
The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 made the first major changes in school meals in 15 years with the intention of raising a healthier generation of students. The new meal standards align school meals with the latest dietary guidelines. The final standards ensure students are offered both fruits and vegetables every day of the week, a substantial increase in whole grain-rich foods, only fat-free or low-fat milk varieties, a limited number of calories based on the age of students served to ensure proper portion size, and a reduction in amounts of saturated fat, trans fats and sodium.
Below are the menu templates and sample menus that reflect the new changes from the USDA. These are available for you to use and download.
These sauces and toppings were created to add new flavors and taste appeal to your students' favorite foods.
