What is a Meal?
Frisco ISD participates in the National School Breakfast and Lunch programs and receives government reimbursement and donated commodities for each meal served. In return, the district must serve meals which comply with specific guidelines based on the 2010 Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act and USDA Standards. All schools must offer foods, individually or in combination dishes, from the following main food groups (called meal components):
Meat or Meat Alternative
Lunch Program Basics
Students are encouraged to try an item from each offered component and may select all 5 of the offered components for the best possible nutrition. The minimum number of components required is 3 for a well-balanced, reimbursable meal. All reimbursable meals must include the selection of at least 1 fruit or 1 vegetable Students who select fewer than 3 components, or who do not choose a fruit or vegetable will be charged for their selections based on a la carte prices. THIS APPLIES TO BOTH BREAKFAST AND LUNCH. Students may select unlimited fruits and vegetables. Students are asked to only select what they will consume.
Frisco ISD uses the Offer vs Serve method to allow students more flexibility when choosing from multiple main dishes, side dishes, fruits and vegetables every day. The following are just a few examples of how our menu has become more healthy and colorful.
At least 4 fruit and vegetable choices are offered every day. We offer a rainbow of vegetables such as spinach, carrots, sweet potatoes, broccoli, beans, and cherry tomatoes. We also offer daily fresh seasonal fruit options—grapes, apples, oranges, melons, and more!
Whole grain-rich options are offered daily at every grade level, including whole grain bread, buns, rolls, tortillas, pasta, and rice.
Our food contains zero grams of trans fat and we never fry our food!
We serve whole grain breaded, whole muscle, white meat chicken tenders, chunks, and filets. And, one or more vegetarian/meatless options are offered each day.
Daily milk options include 1% white and fat free chocolate. Chocolate milk does not contain high fructose corn syrup. The milk we serve is also made without the use of artificial growth hormones.
Frisco ISD follows all federal, state, and local school nutrition regulations. For more information about the specific guidelines concerning student meals, please visit www.fns.usda.gov.
