Red Creek Central School District is committed to providing your child with good nutrition every day.
Some important information that you should know:
Your child must choose at least one fruit or vegetable among the three meal components they need to take for a complete lunch and breakfast.
Calorie maximums were new at the start of last school year. Since then, USDA has given us more flexibility within the calorie maximums, so that we can serve more grains and proteins when that makes more sense in the given day’s menu. Students still must choose at least one fruit or vegetable serving and we encourage them to choose more if they like.
Students have a greater selection and variety of fruits and vegetables to choose from.
Weekly offerings of dark green and red/orange vegetables as well as beans and other legumes are on the menu.
All grains we serve are at least 51% or more whole grain rich.
Meals average less than 10% calories from saturated fat, and every item contains ZERO grams of trans fat.
Only fat-free or 1% unflavored and fat-free flavored milks are served.
We are meeting new standards for limiting sodium until we reach a final maximum of 740 mg per meal on average.
Students must now choose a fruit serving and two other items as part of their complete breakfast meal.
