Fun health and nutrition facts about the Moreland School District Meal Program.
- The Moreland School District Meal Program has been 100% trans-fat free since 2006.
- Many entrees - such as pizzas, corn dogs, cereal, and muffins - are made from whole grains.
- All menus meet federal and state guidelines of less than 30% total fat, and less than 10% saturated fat.
- We do not fry any foods - chicken nuggets, breaded chicken patty sandwiches, french fried potatoes, orange chicken, and corn dogs are all baked.
- Our milk section is all natural, rBST-free.
- Ingredients and menu selections are low fat or low sugar whenever possible.
- Fresh fruits and vegetables are acquired through local California growers.
- We no longer use styrofoam trays at the elementary schools. We have switched to a reusable, washable red basket as a meal tray, helping the environment by limiting excess trash disposal. Students at Moreland Middle School use recycled cardboard food trays.
- Moreland School District has a Wellness Committee that discusses the overall well being of the Moreland community. They discuss and implement programs to improve all levels of wellness: communication, education, physical activity, and all food at our schools - meal programs, classroom parties, and other food related events. If you are interested in being a part of this committee, contact Rick Kessler, Food Services Consultant, at 408.874.2962.
