Meal Pattern

 Child   Nutrition provides breakfast and lunch for all students every school day. All   meals follow the menu pattern and nutritional guidelines established by the   United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). Breakfast costs $1.50 and   lunch is $2.45 Reduced prices for qualifying students is $.30 for breakfast   and $.40 for lunch. Sylacauga City Schools follows the traditional   food-based menu pattern for all student meals in accordance with USDA   regulations. In 2010 the federal Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act created the   most intense changes in school nutrition in a generation. New requirements   include increased emphasis on fruits and vegetables, with careful control of   calories and saturated fat. Click here for the USDA Meal Pattern used by all   schools.


Offer vs. Serve

   Breakfast   components are milk, fruit/juice/vegetable, and grains. Every morning four items will be offered at breakfast and students must select at least three of the items, with one item being 1/2 cup Fruit and/or vegetables. It is certainly acceptable to select all four items.


   Lunch components are meat/meat alternate, fruit, vegetables, grains, and milk. Students must select, at a minimum, 1/2 cup serving of fruit and/or vegetables plus any two other full components. We certainly encourage students to fill up on all five components for a healthy meal that will nourish them for classroom learning and physical activity.



 Alabama Nutritional Guidelines

 The Child   Nutrition Program operates under the jurisdiction of the United States   Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Alabama State Department of   Education. In May 2015 the Alabama School Board approved sweeping changes in   nutritional standards for foods provided to students during the school day.   The changes have raised the bar of excellence for nutrition in Alabama's public   schools.
