The Nutrition Services Department is committed to working together with parents to engage students in developing life-long healthy eating habits, not only in school, but at home.

We partner with Nutrislice to provide interactive menus, including breakfast and lunch for all schools.

You may access the menu by clicking here or by going to the "quick links" gray box at the top of the webpage and scrolling to "Lunch Menus".

With Nutrislice you'll be able to:
  • View descriptions and photos.
  • Find nutrition information and carb counts.
  • Rate the foods and leave comments.
  • Translate menus into a variety of languages.
  • Print menus directly from the website.
You can also download the FREE menu app today to access menus anytime, anywhere! Search for "School Lunch By Nutrislice" in the Google Play or iPhone app store.

To ensure that we have the most up to date menu and nutritional information we will no longer be posting pdf menus on line.  Menus are updated to reflect weather related school cancellations. All menus are subject to change.  If you would like a menu sent home with your student, please contact their school office.

Meal Requirements:
Schools across the United States offer meals to students that meet the reimbursement guidelines from United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).  School meals are priced as a unit, and we receive federal and state reimbursement to offset our costs.

To get the most for you money, encourage your child(ren) to purchase a complete meal.

For breakfast, students may choose:
1 serving               Milk (1/2 pint fluid milk)
1 serving               4 oz fruit juice and/or fruit*
1 or 2 servings      Grain/meat/meat alternative (which includes the daily entree)

If students choose at least 3 components (at least one being a fruit or juice), their breakfast will be at the reimbursable meal rate.  If they only choose 2 components, we must charge for each item separately, as the selections would not meet the USDA's requirements for a complete reimbursable meal.

Example:
Menu                    Student selects:
Cheerios                Cheerios, Orange Slices, and Milk
Yogurt                   This is a reimbursable breakfast!
Orange Slices
Milk

For lunch, students may choose:
1 serving               Milk
1 serving               Fruit
1 serving               Vegetable
1 serving               Grain
1 serving               Meat/Meat Alternate

If students choose at least 3 components with one being a fruit and/or vegetable (1/2 cup minimum), their lunch will be at the reimbursable meal rate.  If they only choose 2 components, or do not take a fruit or vegetable, we must charge for each item separately, as the selections would not meet the USDA's requirements for a complete reimbursable meal.

Example:
Menu                    Student selects:
Hamburger             Hamburger on Whole Wheat Bun, Apple Slices (1/2 cup), and Milk
Whole Wheat Bun  This is a reimbursable lunch!
Romaine Lettuce
Tomato Slices
Apple Slices
Milk

Smart Snacks:

Food sold to students during the school day that are not part of the lunch meal, must also follow nutritional guidelines.  For more information click here.



Fresh Fruits & Vegetable Program at Willow.

March Menu

What is the Fresh Fruit  and Vegetable Program (FFVP)?

The FFVP is a federally funded program porviding a fresh fruit or vegetable snack to elementary students during the school day.

The Goal of the FFVP

To create healthier school environments by providing healthier food choices:
  • Expand the variety of fruits and vegetables children experience
  • Increase children's fruit and vegetable consumption
  • Make a difference in children's diets to impact their present and future helath

Nutrition Education

Teacher may use this opportunity to tALk with student about nutrition, health, hygiene and manners.  They may also get creative to incorporate the FFVP into other education lessons.

  • For example: occasionally we may be able to offer exotic products such as starfruit.  Teachers may choose to incorporate this into their geography lesson about the origin of the fruit.
The FFVP is an excellent way to enhance other wellness programs in the school that promote health, nutrition, and physical activity.  Please continue to talk with your children about the healthy choices they receive at school.  For more information or if your child requires a fruit or vegetable meal accommodation, contact your school nurse, cook manager or Bridget Lehn, Nutrition Services Coordinator at 651-407-7524.
