USDA Meal Pattern Changes
How will these affect SPS students and parents?
The Sequoyah Public Schools nutrition department is pleased to announce that in an effort to continually improve the quality of lunches we serve our students, we will begin adopting improved nutrition standards for our school meals.
This will include an increase in the availability of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fat free and low-fat fluid milk in our meals; a reduction in the levels of sodium, saturated fat and trans fat in meals; and meet the nutrition needs of school children within their calorie requirements.
Our goal is to enhance the diet and health of school children, help mitigate the childhood obesity trend, and support learning by promoting healthy habits that will last a lifetime!
