Ludlow Elementary School
Food service survey feedback and information
Just wanted to send out a thank you to all of you who participated in the survey process.
I wanted to touch base on a few of the answers that were addressed in the survey:
All vegetables are either frozen or fresh.
The applesauce that is served is unsweetened.
Bread Whole Grain Pullman White 1/2" Slice Loaf Frozen Meets School Grain Requirements
Cereal is whole grain and reduced sugar
Tomato sauce is low in sodium/sugar
Pasta are all whole grain as is rice.
The school nutrition guidelines do prevent a lot of options for your lunch/breakfast. I am however baking from scratch a lot of items that are compliant using whole grain flour etc. Sodium and sugar are also factors when it comes to meals, which fall under the USDA guidelines.
Items that are brought in through my vendors are whole-grain compliant as well.
Just a little background on some of the items I thought should be addressed.
