Welcome to the new school year!
September 2016

          There are some new changes this year. Please read the message below.


Elementary Lunch  $1.75 
Secondary Lunch $2.25.

  Dear Enfield Families,

    Welcome back to school! I hope you and your families had a great summer and are ready for a new school year.  Please keep reading to hear about any changes for this school year.
     All of our grain items are now considered "whole grain" meaning at least 51% of the grain ingredients are whole grains. The remaining grains must be enriched.  Any items containing grains are affected by this which results in healthier entree and snack items. In addition, the items sold as a la carte and snacks (cookies and ice cream) also have to meet new regulations limiting calories, fat and sodium levels. As a result, we have changed the cookies and ice cream we sell to reflect these healthy regultions. 

    With the start of full day Kindergarten two years ago, these students continue to be eligible for lunch and breakfast. Lunch price at K-5 schools is $1.75. Students approved for free or reduced price lunches can also get breakfast.  Please encourage your child to eat both meals and take advantage of the benefit you receive.  The cost for breakfast at K-5 schools for those with paid status is $1.00.   More information on the breakfast program at your school will be sent home via your student.

    School meals offer students a nutritious and well balanced lunch consisting of milk, fruits and vegetables, proteins and whole grains, and must meet strict limits on saturated fats and portion size.  A few of the key points of the New Meal Pattern we follow are: 

 ·         Age-appropriate calorie limits 

 ·         Larger servings of vegetables and fruits (student must take at least one serving of fruit or vegetable)

 ·         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)

 ·        All grain ingredients are whole grains

 ·         Sodium reduced   

The New Meal Pattern is reflected in our menus.  Monthly menus are sent to you via the school your child attends at the elementary level. In addition, all school menus are posted on our website:  http://www.enfieldschools.org .   Just click on District Departments, and then Nutrition Services. In addition to the menus you will find other useful information such as free and reduced meal applications, snow day cancellation menu changes and payment information. 

Thank you,
 
Diane Edwards
Director of Nutrition Services

Linden’s Cookies are here!

 

Whole Grain Goodness and Great Flavors!

Only $.75 at JFK and High Schools only.

Why did we change? There are new Smart Snacks federal nutritional guidelines for School Year 2014-15. All a la carte and "snack" items must meet the new Federal guidelines. The guidelines restrict calorie count, sodium levels, and fat content.
The good news..... our snacks are much healthier now!
