Welcome to Child Nutrition!

 

Welcome Back to School!


We hope you and your family enjoyed your Summer and are ready for a great school year!

 

Our Food & Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of over 150 food and nutrition professionals dedicated to the students of San Ramon Valley Unified School District.

Our mission: Our mission is to provide access to quality nutritious meals in a customer-friendly environment, and to enhance and support all student’s and educator’s ability to achieve academic excellence while forming healthy life-long eating habits. All meals, food and beverages sold and served at all schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines.

We aim to do the best we can to offer affordable yet tasty meals that provide our students with the nutrients they need to be healthy individuals.

 

In addition to all items now being whole grain,
here is a sampling of the various steps we have taken to make our meals even better!

 

 

·We Have eliminated items that contain trans-fats & limit the allowable saturated fat percentages of total calories.

·We Provide whole grain or reduced sugar cereals with only 5 – 9 grams of sugar per serving.

·Increased the use of whole grain and whole wheat products in breads, pizza crust, pastas, breakfast & lunch entrées, cereals and many snacks while reducing the levels of sodium and saturated fat.

·We Serve 100% fruit juice.

·We Serve no fried foods on our menu. Any regular or sweet potato products are baked.

·We Only offer low fat white (15 g sugar) & fat-free chocolate milk (18 g sugar).

·A wide variety of vegetable subgroups are offered including dark green, red/orange and legumes. Under the USDA regulations, students are now required to select at least a ½ cup fruit OR vegetable, please encourage your child to try the fruit and vegetable choices that will be offered.

·Sodium range limitations per age based on grade groupings. Your child may notice that some items may have a slightly different taste profile with the reduced sodium preparation methods and manufacturer product reformulation being implemented to meet the new sodium guidelines.

·Any snack or beverage offerings must meet strict restrictions based on size and nutritional value.


We serve approximately 6500 meals per day within the 36 schools. We are starting the new school year offering a variety of new items and will continue to add to that variety throughout the year.

We encourage parents to pre-pay for student meals. Parents are also encouraged to check their student’s account balances to ensure funds are available.

Did you know that your KINDERGARTEN or T-K child can participate in your schools lunch program? Please contact our department of your school site for more information.

We hope the 2017 – 2018 school year is off to a great start for you! And remember...
