Healthy Changes in Our School Cafeterias!

Dear New Prague Area families:

New Prague Area school cafeterias are meeting challenging new federal nutrition standards for school meals and snacks ensuring that meals are healthy and well-balanced and provide students all the nutrition they need to succeed at school.  Now is a great time to encourage your kids to choose school lunch!

School meals offer students milk, fruits and vegetables, proteins and grains, and they must meet strict limits on saturated fat, trans fat and portion size with additional standards including:

  • Age-appropriate calorie limits
  • Larger servings of vegetables and fruits (students must take at least one serving of produce)
  • A wider variety of vegetables, including dark green and red/orange vegetables and legumes.
  • Fat-free or 1% milk (flavored milk must be fat-free).
  • More whole grains.
  • Less sodium.

We know that at times change can be hard, but with your support, we can be sure that children adopt the kind of healthful eating habits and lifestyles that will enable them to live longer, more productive lives.
