USDA Child Nutrition standards are critically needed to help combat the epidemic of childhood obesity as well as the urgent problem of childhood hunger.  Nearly 1 in 3 children are at risk for preventable diseases like diabetes and heart disease due to overweight and obesity.  While parents are ultimately responsible for the nutrition and health of their children, schools also have a responsibility to promote and deliver nutritious appetizing meals.  Burnet C.I.S.D. has been proactive and  has developed menus and revised recipes to meet the USDA School Lunch and Breakfast Programs regulations.

Menus are designed to meet federal guidelines set forth by the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010 which are based on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

Lunch
A student must be offered at least all five food components and the weekly vegetable subgroups.  The food items selected may be from any of the required components and must be served in at least the minimum daily portion. Students may select all five components or at least three components including a fruit or vegetable.

Breakfast
A student must be offered at least four food items and may decline only one food item.  The food items selected may be from any of the required components and must be served in at least the minimum daily portion.  A student must select a fruit or vegetable to be considered a reimbursable meal.

All meals are priced as a unit, however, each item is available a la carte.
