School Year 2012-2013 National School Lunch Program

Report
USDA unveils historic improvements to
meals served in America’s schools!
 Nutrition Standards are the foundation of federal
school nutrition programs and have recently been
updated to reflect the current Dietary Guidelines
for Americans.
 The standards were established by studying
nutritional needs of groups of children at different
ages.
 Nutrient standards consist of the required food
components, levels of calories, and key nutrients.
 A single menu planning approach = HHFKA Food Based Menu
Planning (FBMP)
 Three age/grade groups: K-5, 6-8 & 9-12
 Separation of fruit and vegetables into two groups
• Daily and weekly requirements
• 5 vegetable sub-groups
 Half of grains offered must be whole grain rich (WGR)
 Weekly grain ranges
 Weekly meat/meat alternate ranges
 Dietary specifications for calories, saturated fat and trans fat
 Reimbursable meals must contain a fruit or
vegetable
