      Nutrition Information

      • ChooseMyPlate.govNutrition Information for School Meals

        District 65 participates in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast program. Both programs are federally funded, directed by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and implemented by the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE).

        The Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act was signed by the President in 2010, with implementation beginning in 2012. The rule represents the first major revision of school meal standards in more than 15 years and ensures our kids' lunches and breakfasts have more whole grains, vegetables, and fruits, and less fat and sodium and sets sensible calorie limits based on the age of children being served. The documents below contain nutrition information for food and beverages served in District 65 schools. A nutrition analysis of school meals was completed using NutriKids, a USDA-approved software program, and by a Registered Dietitian. The analysis includes serving size, pertinent nutrition values, and its specific contribution towards the National School Lunch Program meal pattern. A nutrition analysis of ala carte snacks and beverages was conducted by the district's Nutrition Services Coordinator, a Registered Dietitian.
