  • Milk (low-fat white and chocolate, hormone and anti-biotic free)

Each child selects one item from at least 3 of the categories, and one of these items must be either a fruit or vegetable.

All rice is brown rice.

All bread, pasta, pizza dough, and bread crumb coatings are made with 51% whole grain.

Corn dogs and pepperoni for the pizzas are made with turkey.

There are no fried foods on the menu; chicken nuggets, curly fries, corn dogs, and other foods that are typically fried are baked.
