East Side Union High School District is meeting tough new Federal nutrition standards for school meals, ensuring that meals are healthy and well-balanced and provide students all the nutrition they need to succeed at school. Now is a great time to encourage your students to choose school lunch!
School meals offer students milk, fruits and vegetables, proteins and grains, and they must meet strict limits on saturated fat, sodium, calorie and portion size requirements. School lunches will meet standards requiring:
- Age-appropriate calorie limits
- Larger servings of vegetables and fruits (students must take a least one serving of produce)
- A wider variety of vegetables, including dark green and re/orange vegetables and legumes
- Fat-free or 1% milk (flavored milk must be fat-free)
- All whole grains
- Less sodium
We're always working to offer East Side Union High School District students healthier and tastier choices. The daily menu has a wide variety of choices including alternate protein choices and fresh fruits and vegetables.
School meals are a great value and a huge convenience for busy families too! Meals can be paid for by cash or check in the cafeteria.
We look forward to welcoming and serving your student to the cafeteria this year.
