School Breakfast Information

Dear Student:

Every breakfast is planned to include three food components: 1. Fruit*  2. Grains (with optional meat/meat alternates allowed) 3. Milk.

The food components for each breakfast will be posted at the beginning of each serving line. You are encouraged to take all the foods offered; however, you must take at least three items, one of which must be 1/2 cup of fruit*. Whether you take three items or more, the meal is the same price.

“Offer” allows you to choose three or more food items you would like to take to build a healthy reimbursable meal. One of those three food items must be 1/2 cup fruit*.

STEP 1: Choose 1/2 cup of fruit*.

STEP 2: Choose two or more of the following items:

  • Grains (1 oz. equivalent) or optional meat/meat alternate (1 oz.)

Whole Wheat Toast (grains)

You may take all five food items  OR  choose a combination of three or four items that includes 1/2 cup of fruit*.
