   Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act

As you may have heard, for the first time in 15 years, the USDA has made significant changes to school meals in an effort to curb childhood obesity. These changes impact schools (K-12) that participate in the USDA child nutrition programs (National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs).

In December of 2010 the Healthy, Hunger-free Kid’s Act was passed into law. In January of 2012 the U.S. Department of Agriculture released the final meal pattern requirements that are mandated by that law.

What does this mean for you?  We want to provide you with the best possible healthy meals, so many of these “new” requirements are already in place. We offer a great selection of fruits and vegetables throughout the week, exceeding the standard of USDA.

You have already seen low fat and no fat milk in our schools. You may know that all of our sandwiches are made using whole grain and whole wheat breads, and that we are serving brown rice and other whole grain items.

Our menus have always been analyzed to make sure that we are in compliance with the Dietary Guidelines and USDA regulations.

We will continue to seek ways to improve the quality and nutrition of school meals for Kennewick School District families.
