Important information

Chesterfield County Public Schools provides nutritious breakfasts and lunches, offering milk, fruits, vegetables, proteins and grains and meeting strict limits on saturated fat and portion size. The nutritional integrity of school meals has always been a priority, and the school system is meeting the challenges set forth in the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act. School lunches must meet tough federal standards that require

  • age-appropriate calorie limits (Some portions will be reduced.)
  • larger servings of vegetables and fruits (Students are required to take at least one fruit or vegetable.)
  • wider variety of vegetables, including dark green vegetables, red/orange vegetables and legumes (Cooked and fresh versions will be offered weekly.)
  • fat-free or 1 percent milk (Flavored milk must be fat free. Whole milk and 2 percent milk will not be available.)
  • more whole grains (At least half of all the grains in school meals must be whole grains.)
  • minimum and maximum levels for all grain products and protein products
  • less sodium
