Your Children's Meals May Look and Taste Different This Year
Meals that are part of the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program are required to meet new nutrition standards established by the federal government. Promesa Public Schools has developed menus that meet the new regulations by including the healthy foods required and limiting things like trans fats and sodium. When children are offered these new menu items, they will continue to see balanced meals that are appealing and appetizing like the one pictured here.
