National School Lunch Week

Knippa ISD is excited to celebrate

National School Lunch Week from

October 15-19.

 

When young Texans

 “Level Up with a Healthy School Lunch”

 they feel the benefits of eating

 the whole grains, fruits, vegetables, healthy dairy

and lean protein their cafeteria offers. Leveling up the

day makes students winners in the classroom,

on the playground and in life.

 

We are making school lunches healthier and offer fresh produce every day.

·         All bread, pasta, crackers and tortillas are whole grain rich

·         Students have a daily choice of 3-4 fruits and/or vegetables

·         Lower sodium in breads, vegetables, processed foods and ketchup

·         More red/orange and dark green vegetables are being served every week

·         Fat free flavored milk and 1% white milk

 

 

We want to encourage all students to eat a healthy lunch every day.  If you pack lunches be sure to include servings of fruits and vegetables.

Next week we will be giving small daily prizes to students who eat a school lunch.

 

We have included next week’s menu on the back.  If you have any questions,
