Menus and Nutrition Standards

Menus and Nutrition Standards

What are the Nutritional Standards for school meals? 
School meals are nutritious. Our school meals are required to meet specific nutrition standards to operate the school meals program. The baseline standards are set by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the California Department of Education. The SRVUSD menu will continue to meet the including limits on calories, sodium and unhealthy fats. Students choose from a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean and plant proteins and milk with every meal. 
Per federal guidelines, school lunches must include:
  • More fruits and vegetables: Vegetable choices must include weekly offerings of legumes, dark green, red/orange, starchy and other vegetables. Students are required to take at least one half-cup serving of fruits or vegetables with every school breakfast and lunch.
  • Whole grains: At least half of the grains offered with school meals must be whole grain-rich (at least 51% whole grain).
