On the menu: Fresh, healthy school food

There’s a lot to love about the healthy breakfasts and lunches our cafeterias serve each day. 4J’s school meals offer delicious options to meet every kid’s tastes—our menus are developed using student input. They’re also nutritious, convenient and affordable.

Farm-fresh produce: Students serve themselves unlimited fruits and vegetables from the “rainbow offering bar,” similar to a salad bar, that’s included with every school meal. Most of this produce is fresh, and a good amount of it is local or organic.

Locally sourced: 4J emphasizes local food sources where feasible. The district purchases tens of thousands of pounds of fruits and vegetables from Lane County farms every year. All of our milk comes from local dairy farms. Our bread products are freshly baked in Springfield.

Nutritionally balanced: Our schools’ weekly menus are carefully planned to meet or exceed nutrition guidelines set by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Child Nutrition Program and the district’s wellness policy.

Affordable for every budget: School meals are reasonably priced, offering better nutrition for lower cost than many convenient alternatives. More than half of 4J’s elementary school students and more than 40 percent of all students qualify to receive school meals free or at reduced prices. The program is confidential, and qualifying opens doors to additional cost-saving benefits.

Abundant choice: With at least three lunch entrées to choose from each day, elementary students are sure to find a meal that suits their tastes. Middle schools and high schools offer even more choices, including “grab and go” options for students who prefer to eat outside the cafeteria.

Meal makeovers: The bread products we serve are more than 50% whole grain. we’ve worked to eliminate trans fats and reduce saturated fats from our food supplies: Every 4J meal now has zero grams of trans fat per serving. We continue our quest to increase our variety of minimally processed foods and reduce sodium, high-fructose corn syrup and food additives, all while keeping meals kid-friendly.

No meat? No problem. Vegetarian options are available every day. Most of the meat on school menus is chicken or turkey.

Healthy beverages: Our elementary and middle schools serve only fat-free and low-fat milk that is free of rBST growth hormones and high-fructose corn syrup; and plain, pure water. There’s also 100% juice at breakfast. Additional low-calorie beverages may be sold in high schools. Soda pop is not sold or distributed at school.

Junk-food free: The district adopted a comprehensive wellness policy in 2006. In: Healthier options, age-appropriate calorie limits, and guidelines for healthy snacks and parties. Out: Soda pop, chewing gum, and most kinds of candy, which can’t be offered for sale or given as a reward. The district also encourages families who send lunch or snacks to school with their children to select healthful options.
