How many school age children eat school lunch every day? Average ADP for 7/2010 -6/2011 was 96,185 71.41% of children enrolled in schools and agencies participate in the program * 33.2% of enrolled students eligible free 6,842,384 lunches served to student eligible free 8.5% of enrolled student eligible reduced price 12,600,565 lunches served to students eligible at reduce rate 58.3 % of students eligible at paid rate. 9,177,349 lunches served to students eligible at paid rate Total of 17,620,298 lunches served in NSLP in South Dakota Currently 41.7% of enrolled students were eligible for free and reduced price. In SY 10-11 37.9% of enrolled students were eligible for free and reduced price meals.
The School Nutrition Association is still reviewing the details of the new meal pattern. School nutrition professionals asked to comment do not need to provide answers or specifics related to details immediately but we do encourage comment on positive areas we want to emphasize and efforts, particularly: offer more fruits and vegetables serve more whole grain-rich foods offer only fat-free or low-fat milk varieties make sure kids are getting proper portion sizes.
We are still reviewing all the details of the new meal pattern, but our school district has already brought a variety of healthier choices to our school cafeterias that address goals in the new regulations. _ Ranch dressing is made with half yogurt and half buttermilk to cut sodium and fats _ The Taco meat recipe has been changed to lower the sodium _ We are using ½ of regular beef or chicken bases along with ½ low sodium We serve at least one fresh fruit and vegetables every day We already made the switch to 1% or fat free milk All of the bread is whole grain enriched except our t-roll and hoggie bun Our cafeterias have introduced lower sodium entrees We offer salads or a cold sandwich every day at each school After thorough review of the meal pattern, we’ll begin building on the progress we’ve already made and plan our menus for next school year to reflect these new nutrition guidelines.
We know it’s critical that students accept and consume these healthier options. Our school nutrition staff has found great ways to get students excited about healthy food choices and we’ll continue to work on creative solutions to ensure healthy foods appeal to students. Continue to work on a farm to school program to bring fresh, local produce into the schools We host student taste tests to get feedback directly from students and get them involved in the menu planning process at the high school We offer fresh fruits and vegetables to students under the grant we receive. We’ll face some challenges to meet all the new requirements on a tight budget, but our school nutrition program will be working hard to make these healthy changes for our students. We hope parents will support this effort by encouraging their students to give the healthier meals a try.

Students are allowed to select ½ cup of fruit under OVS. Grains and Meat/Meat Alternate (M/MA) 2 grains, or 2 meat/meat alternates, or 1 of each per day Daily min. and weekly ranges for grains: Grades K-5: 1 oz eq. min. daily (7-10 oz weekly) Grades 6-8 : 1 oz eq. min. daily (8-10 oz weekly) Grades 9-12 : 1 oz eq. min. daily (9-10 oz weekly) Note: Quantity required SY 2013-14. Schools may substitute M/MA for grains after the minimum daily grains requirement is met. Whole GrainsEncouraged At least half of the grains must be whole grain-rich beginning July 1, 2013. Beginning July 1, 2014, all grains must be whole grain rich. Milk1 cup Variety of fat contents allowed; flavor not restricted 1 cup Must be fat-free (unflavored/flavored) or 1% low fat (unflavored)

2. What are the main differences between the proposed and final rules? The final rule makes significant improvements to school meals, while modifying several key proposed requirements to address public comments regarding cost, timing/implementation, food waste, and administrative burden. The final rule, in comparison to the proposed rule: Phases-in changes to the breakfast program gradually over a three-year period Does not require a meat/meat alternate at breakfast daily Does not restrict starchy vegetables, and establishes weekly minimums for all vegetable subgroups Reduces the required weekly grains amounts at lunch Allows students to take smaller portions of the fruits and vegetables components (at least ½ cup of either) under Offer versus Serve Provides an additional year for the implementation of the second sodium target Requires State agencies to assess compliance with the new meal requirements based on the review of one week of menus (instead of two weeks as proposed) Allows schools to continue the current tomato paste crediting practice of crediting by whole food equivalency
3. How are the new meal patterns and dietary specifications different from current requirements? The key changes to the meals for children in grades K and above are: NSLP A daily serving of fruits A daily serving of vegetables plus a weekly requirement for dark green, red/orange, beans/pea (legumes), starchy, and “other” vegetables Increased quantity of combined fruits and vegetables Weekly meat/meat alternate ranges plus a daily requirement In the first year of implementation, at least half of the grains offered during the school week must be whole grain-rich SBP Meat/meat alternate may be offered after minimum grains requirement is met In the second year of rule implementation, at least half of the grains offered during the school week must be whole grain-rich In the third year of implementation, fruit quantity increase at breakfast Breakfast is included in administrative reviews
NSLP and SBP One food-based menu planning approach and same age/grade groups Fruits and vegetables are two separate food components Daily fruits requirement Under Offer versus Serve, student must select at least ½ cup of the fruits or the vegetables component as part of the reimbursable meal Weekly grains ranges plus daily minimum requirement On the third year of rule implementation, all grains offered during the school week must be whole grain-rich Fat-free (unflavored or flavored) and unflavored low-fat milk only Calorie minimum and maximum levels Intermediate (Target 1 and Target 2) and final sodium reductions Trans fat limit Limit on saturated fat only (not on total fat) 3-year administrative review cycle
Meat/Meat Alternate: 11. Is a daily meat/meat alternate required at breakfast? No; schools have discretion to offer a meat/meat alternate after the minimum daily grains requirement (1 oz. eq.) is met. 12. Are schools required to offer tofu as part of the lunch menu? No; the final rule allows schools the option to offer commercially-prepared tofu as a meat alternate.
Sodium: 18. What is the sodium requirement and when will schools have to meet it? See the following chart for deadlines and corresponding maximum limits. Implementation of the second and final targets is subject to USDA’s review of data on the relationship between sodium intake and human health, as required by the FY 2012 Agriculture Appropriations Act.
