4 9-12 grade menu is: 2 hard shelled tacos (2 meat/mt alt and 2oz grain equivalent) Refried beans (1 cup) [used as a vegetable] Fresh apples Milk variety The student takes ½ cup refried beans, 1 apple and 1 taco, is this a reimbursable meal? No, because in order to count the grain or the meat/mt alt the 2 oz serving must be taken.

5 LUNCH 5 Days a Week 4 Days a Week Grade GroupsCalories K

6 Grains and Meat/Meat Alts have minimums and maximums Calories also have minimums and maximums Why is this a good idea?

7 If portions need to be exact and accurate then: Recipes need to be accurate Portion sizes need to be consistent There will be a minimum of leftovers And another benefit is that the program will be fiscally sound

8 All recipes need to be standardized Weight is more accurate than volume Use a scale Adjust recipes that call for volume inappropriately. For example: 1 Gal of flour (How much is that?)

9 When a recipe calls for 18 pounds of ground beef and ground beef comes in 5# chubs what will you do?

10 It is important to be able to visualize the portions that students take from self-serve bars. Do you know what ½ cup of lettuce or carrots look like? The following slides have portions on them and you are asked to determine the serving size of foods on the next 8 slides.

11 All portions were determined using exact weights from the USDA Food Buying Guide.

12 ¼ c Fruit ½ c Fruit ¼ cup ½ cup 1 cup

13 .61oz Ham = ½ M/MA 1.22oz Ham = 1M/MA 2.44oz Ham = 2M/MA Based on USDA Ham, products will vary in M/MA equivalents..61 oz ham= ½ m/ma 1.22oz ham= 1 m/ma 2.44 oz= 2 m/ma

14 ¼ c Vegetable ½ c Vegetable 1 c Vegetable ¼ cup ½ cup 1 cup

15 1/8 c Vegetable = ½ M/MA ¼ c Vegetable = 1 M/MA ½ c Vegetable = 1/8 cup= ½ m/ma ¼ cup= 1 m/ma ½ cup= 2 m/ma

16 ¼ c Fruit ½ c Fruit 1 c Fruit ¼ cup ½ cup 1 cup

17 ¼= ¼ M/MA ½ = ½ M/MA 1 oh= 1 M/MA ¼ oz= ¼ m/ma ½ oz = ½ m/ma 1 oz= 1 m/ma

18 ¼ c Vegetable ½ c Vegetable 1 c Vegetable ¼ cup ½ cup 1 cup

19 ¼ c Lettuce = 1/8 c Vegetable ½ c Lettuce = ¼ c Vegetable 1 c Lettuce = ½ c Vegetable ¼ cup= 1/8 cup veg eq. ½ cup= ¼ cup veg eq 1 cup= ½ cup vegetable equivalent

20 Food service people are nurturers. We fulfill a need for the students on a most basic level; we make them happy through the foods that we provide them. Everyone needs to eat and we make that happen. As a result, it is easy for us to want to give large portions of food to the students, especially if its their favorite.

23 The appropriate size of meat/meat alternate and the appropriate size of grain oz equivalents may have students choosing to eat more fruits and vegetables because some students will still have room for them.

24 What do you have to lose? Your students will be healthier if they eat the fruits and vegetables.

25 Adhere to the portion sizes Make adjustments to recipes so that they are accurate Prepare only what you need Get good at identifying portion sizes Give the new menu planning method a chance to be successful
