Changes in milk choices at breakfast beginning Jan 20, 2015

As a part of the Healthy, Hunger-free Kids Act, USDA set limits on some key nutrients in school meals, one of them being sodium to promote healthy blood pressure. Starting with the 2014-2015 school year, the amount of sodium allowed in the daily breakfast meal is limited to 540 mg in K-5, 600 mg in 6-8, and 640 mg in 9-12.  These limits are based on the average 5-day week menu that includes a breakfast entrée, two ½ cup choices of fruit and low fat/nonfat milk.


Due to the way cocoa is processed, a carton of nonfat chocolate milk provides 180 mg of sodium as compared to 125 mg for the other flavored and unflavored milks. To help us meet the sodium targets noted above, nonfat chocolate milk will no longer be offered as a breakfast milk choice. We will continue to offer the other Mayfield milk choices: skim, 1% low-fat, as well as nonfat, low sugar strawberry and vanilla flavored milks based on customer preferences. Students will be able to enjoy their favorite nonfat chocolate milk at lunch because the sodium limits set for lunch are higher.


Additional changes to the breakfast menus and a pilot-testing of healthy yogurt & fruit smoothies will be coming in the spring menus. Remember that eating breakfast at school is a convenient and a healthy way to start the learning day.

MealCharge policy and Courtesy Snack


TheBoard policy for students without adequate funds to purchase school mealsallows for elementary students to charge up to 5 lunches.  Negative mealcharges are not allowed for middle or high school students, adults, or for anya la carte purchases.  Students who have unpaidmeal charges will not be allowed to purchase a la carte food items until mealcharges have been repaid.

Elementarystudents who have exceeded the charge limit, as well as middle and high schoolstudents without sufficient funds for lunch, will be offered an alternativesnack of a cheese sandwich and milk or juice.  To prevent your child frombeing offered the courtesy snack, please provide money for your student's mealseach day or prepay for meals in advance.  School cafeterias make everyeffort to inform students and parents when funds are low with notices sent homevia student, verbal reminders to students, and apple stamps.

Parents are responsible to ensure that children have an adequate lunch from home or sufficient funds to purchase school meals.  To assist parents, student account balances can be monitored any time via   reguardless of whether you use the online funding option, send cash or checks, or you may callthe school nutrition program.
