_______________________________________________________________

Monday - Variety

  • Students have a choice between 4 entree options each day, 1 hot entree and 3 cold vegetarian entrees. The vegetarian options include: the sunbutter sandwich, yogurt & granola, and the hummus with crackers 
  • Students also have a choice between two different fruits and two different vegetables each day. And that’s in addition to the beautiful romaine lettuce that's provided daily.

Tuesday - Farm to school  

  • Farm to school takes place in a number of ways here at our district. Several schools have gardens where they are growing their own vegetables. This provides an amazing experience for students. Many times the schools will send their freshly picked produce to be washed, cut and sent back to be served on their own salad bar.
  • Today's hot entree is Grilled chicken strips with Mrs. G’s Mexican Red Rice. This is a scratch made rice recipe from our rice recipe contest. It was provided by a grandmother at Hermosa Drive. Thank you Mrs. G!!

Wednesday - Chef inspired recipes

  • We have many new items on our menu this year. A couple examples of our chef inspired recipes include our Kickin Korean Meatballs with a scratch made BBQ sauce, scratch made cornbread, scratch made Mexican Red Rice and a scratch made  Asian rice called “When Egg Met Rice”.
  • As a treat today we have a scratch made Confetti Cake!  But shhh! Don't tell the kids it's made with whole grain. It’s moist and delicious!!

Thursday -Fueling minds

  • Most of you have probably heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day! This is still true!  We encourage all students to eat a good breakfast to get their day started right. We know that students that eat breakfast do better in school.
  • On the menu today we’ll be serving breakfast for lunch, pancakes with Eggstravaganza!

Friday - Local sources

  • In addition to providing more fresh foods we are also trying to use more local food companies. One of our produce companies, Sunrise Produce is located here in Fullerton and provides as much California grown produce as possible. We’re also proud to serve fresh baked breadsticks and biscuits from Bridgeford, also a local company.
  • DeeLite is a local snack company that many schools use for fundraising since some of their choices meet Smart Snack requirements. Please refer to our “Suggested Smart Snack List” for compliant snack ideas: http://district.schoolnutritionandfitness.com/fullertonsd/files/CompliantSnackList2018-2019.pdf

School-Lunch.jpg

A good lunch benefits a student by giving him the energy to remain alert during class time.  This is true whether the student is in elementary school, high school or college.  As long as the student avoids a heavy midday meal, which can cause lethargy and sleepiness, a healthy lunch helps maintain peak academic performance.  Make lunch even more beneficial by choosing foods based on their nutritional benefits.

Good choices for a student's lunch include raw vegetables, whole grains and lean meat or other protein sources.  Include a light ranch dressing for vegetable dipping, and fill whole grain breads with protein-packed sunbutter. Also drink plenty of water with lunch.  The National School Lunch Program bases its prescribed meals for schools on the USDA Food Plate guide.  Consulting the Food Plate guide helps inform students about the best diet, including lunches.

The vitamins and nutrients contained in many fruits and vegetables contribute to a stronger immune system, which can mean fewer days of school missed because of illness and therefore better grades.
