Healthy Changes in Our School Cafeterias
Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, MRH school cafeterias began meeting new federal nutrition standards for school meals, ensuring that meals are healthy and well-balanced and provide students all the nutrition they need to succeed at school. School meals offer students milk, fruits and vegetables, proteins and grains, and they must meet strict limits on saturated fat and portion size.
School lunches meet additional standards requiring:
- Age-appropriate calorie limits
- Larger servings of vegetables and fruits (students must take at least one serving of produce)
- A wider variety of vegetables, including dark green and red/orange vegetables and legumes
- Fat-free or 1% milk (flavored milk must be fat-free)
- More whole grains
- And less sodium
We’re always working to offer MRH students healthier and tastier choices. We will continue to offer locally grown foods and healthy meal choices. School meals are a great value and a huge convenience for busy families too. MRH will continue to offer free breakfast to all students.
Food and Nutrition
At each of the schools, the MRH Food Services program offers nutritional, healthy, and tasty food, which is important because healthy food is vital to mental and physical growth during a student’s formative years. In addition to integrating food and nutrition into the curriculum, MRH has infused a number of innovations into the food service program, which you can read about here.
MRH provides breakfast and lunch each school day. Lunch prices are established at the beginning of every school year. For families that are unable to afford the cost, lunches can be provided at no cost or at a reduced cost. To be eligible, families must complete and submit a Free and Reduced Lunch form at the beginning of the school year. Contact Irene Wan, director of food service, at (314) 446-1722 for more details.
MRH participates in a federal program, which provides free breakfasts to all students. We believe this fulfills a nutritional, as well as an economic, need in our community.
