Nutritious Foods in the Gayman Cafeteria~A Few Words from Aramark

A few parents have asked how the Gayman Cafeteria food fits in with Healthy Eating. This is information from Aramark. I hope it helps!

All of our menus meet or exceed the USDA requirements and also meet Bronze level certification by the Alliance for a Healthier Generation. When we develop our menus, we are required by the USDA to stay within an age-grade determined min-max calorie range and to limit saturated fat to a specified percentage. We strive to serve quality nutritious meals by creating menus using whole grains, lean proteins, low fat cheeses and encouraging the selection of fresh fruits and vegetables.
