Dear Enfield Families,
This September, Enfield Nutrition Services will be required to meet tough new nutritional standards (called the New Meal Pattern) for school meals, ensuring that all meals continue to be nutritious, 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 must meet strict limits on saturated fats and portion size. Starting in School Year 2012-2013, school lunches will meet additional standards requiring:
· Age-appropriate calorie limits (currently we only had to meet minimum calorie range, now there are maximum 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)
· More whole grains
· Sodium reduced
We look forward to welcoming your children to the cafeteria this fall. Please help prepare them for the changes by talking to them about healthy eating and why these changes are good for them and their health. Encourage them to identify and even try new foods the next time you are in the produce isle. For more information about school meals, visit www.TrayTalk.org.
In addition to receiving the menus in your child’s backpack, you can also find our menus on the Nutrition Services website: http://www.enfieldschools.org . Just click on District Departments, Nutrition Services, and then Menus. You will also find other relevant information including free and reduced meal applications and payment information.
Have a great summer and we will see you in September!
