School Meal Adjustments for 2024-25 from USDA

Biden-Harris Administration Announces New School Meal Standards to Strengthen Child Nutrition. These standards will be implemented in the coming years. If you have questions, please contact the director of food service or your child's school nutrition team.

  • #DYK Research shows that school meals are the most nutritious food source for American children—thanks in large part to the work of school nutrition professionals, parents, school meal partners, the food industry, and USDA to make school meals healthier over the past decade.
  • New updates to school meals focus on giving kids the right balance of nutrients, while reducing the amounts of added sugars in menu items, especially at breakfast. Learn more about the gradual changes.
  • #DYK: For the first time, added sugars will be limited in school meals nationwide. USDA heard concerns from parents and teachers about excessive amounts of added sugars in some foods, and research shows that these added sugars are common in typical school breakfast items. Learn more.
  • The updates to school nutrition standards will provide children with less sugars and sodium, which are too high in the American diet, and continue to provide nutritious foods including fruits, veggies, and whole grains. Learn more.
  • Current nutrition standards for whole grains are not changing! Schools will continue to offer students a variety of nutrient-rich whole grains and have the option to offer some enriched grains to meet students’ cultural and taste preferences. Learn more.
  • We will continue to do everything we can to provide support that improves the nutritional quality of school meals across America. Learn about the financial support that USDA is providing to schools. #schoolmeals
  • We are committed to promoting #NutritionSecurity for all kids, ensuring they have consistent access to nutritious foods and beverages that support their health and well-being. Learn more about the updated school nutrition standards. #schoolmeals
