Q & A

USDA reimburses schools for meals that meet specific meal patterns and nutrition guidelines. USDA nutrition guidelines are consistent with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. School systems have different options for developing menus with reimbursable meals. Each meal will be some combination of a meat/meat alternate, bread/grain, fruit/vegetable and milk. For example, lunch could include spaghetti with meat sauce, canned peaches, salad and milk. Breakfast could include cereal, toast and milk.

Very healthy!  Research shows that students who eat school lunch eat less fat than students who bring their lunch from home. Students who eat school lunch eat more fruits, vegetables and drink more milk. They are less likely to drink soda and fruit drinks. 

As a part of the National School Lunch Program, LPS is required to serve whole grains, low fats, colorful fruits and vegetables with many healthy and flavorful options.
