School Lunch: Good for Kids and Good for Your Wallet •

As the cost of everything increases – there is one meal that is still a great value: both nutritionally and economically! School lunch is still an incredible bargain at $2.75 at Littleton Public Schools Every School Lunch Includes Five Great Choices: • • • • •

Milk – Fat free or 1% - flavored or regular Vegetables – From locally grown corn on the cob to fresh carrot sticks Fruit –locally grown apples, peaches, pears, and plums (in season) Grains – More whole grain items like rolls or sandwich bread Meat or meat alternate –White meat chicken and turkey, beans, lean beef

Healthy Meals Feed Eager Minds •

Save Money: Eat School Lunch • •

On average it costs less to buy a school lunch than to bring a lunch from home. Ingredients purchased locally to make a bag lunch with a turkey and cheese sandwich on whole wheat bread, lettuce and tomato, chips, a local apple, and milk purchased at school cost $3.21. Not including the labor to shop and make the lunch! The estimated national average of a school lunch from home was $3.43 last school year.1

All children at participating schools may purchase meals through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). Families with incomes at or below 130 percent of the poverty level are eligible for free meals.

According to a meal cost analysis by Alice Jo Rainville, PhD, RD, CHE, SNS of Eastern Michigan University, Ypsilanti, MI

Families with incomes between 130 percent and 185 percent of the poverty level are eligible for reducedprice meals; these students can be charged no more than 40 cents. Contact your school nutrition department to fill out a school meal application.

Meals served under the NSLP must meet nutrition guidelines based on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. No more than 30% of calories can come from fat and less than 10% from saturated fat. School lunches provide one-third of the Recommended Dietary Allowances of protein, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, iron, calcium and calories over the course of one week of menus. Students who eat school lunches consume less calories from fat than students who bring lunch from home. Compared to lunches from home, school lunches contain: o Three times as many dairy products o Twice as much fruit o Seven time the vegetable amounts NSLP participants have substantially lower intakes of added sugars than do nonparticipants.
