A new set of standards for school lunches are being implemented by the USDA. In the new guidelines, two tablespoons of tomato paste on a frozen pizza can count as a serving of vegetables. The Los Angeles Unified School District recently hailed itself as a “model school district” and “leader in child nutrition.” They’ve made a lot of changes to the menu, including adding more fruits and vegetables.
Menus for school lunches
The School District’s lunch menu is a great guide for creating a school lunch menu. It’s also a great resource for finding out more about specific ingredients in different foods. You can filter through the School District’s menu to find the meals you’re interested in, and the software highlights the specifics of ingredients in each dish.
The interactive menu will help you identify the ingredients and dietary restrictions for each item. However, it should be noted that these are general guidelines, and the ingredients are subject to change. Parents are encouraged to contact the school district in advance if they have a dietary need. This way, they can request dietary accommodations.
Online ordering for school lunches
The School Lunch Program has made it easy to order meals for your kids by providing an online form. You can select from several different places to order from, including Boli Pizza and Chick-fil-A. You can even pay online using a credit card. Once you’ve filled out the form and submitted it, you’ll receive a link to pay for the order. Just be sure to place the order by midnight on Saturday.
