School Meals are Changing
You may have heard there will be new requirements for school meals. These new requirements are great news for our students! The new requirements will build on the work the North Thurston Public School Distict's Food and Nutrition Department is already doing to provide more fruits, vegetables, whole grains and healthier main dishes in our school cafeterias.
Some of the Changes Include:
- Increasing the amount of fresh fruits and vegetables, particularly, dark green, vibrant red/orange vegetables and legumes/beans.
- Reducing the sodium in meals over the next 10 years
- Setting calorie maximums for the first time
- Increasing whole grains
- Requiring students to take 1/2 cup fruit and/or vegetable with each meal
