Menus and More
AISD serves different menus for elementary schools, middle schools and high schools. Lunch menus are designed to meet federal guidelines set forth by the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010 which are based on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
Servings of legumes, dark green vegetables and red or orange vegetables are available for all students weekly. All lunches include an entrée, a whole grain item, two servings of vegetables, at least one serving of fruit and low fat or skim milk. High School Students may select two servings of fruit as well as the two servings of vegetables with their meals.
Students may select all five components or at least three components including a serving of vegetable or fruit. Meals are priced as a unit; however, each item is available a la carte.
These guidelines are represented by “My Plate” from “Choose My Plate.gov”.
Eat Smart at lunch by choosing 3, 4, or 5 different colors. You must select at least one fruit or vegetable.
