    nutrition standards
  • RDA for calories, protein, vit A, vit C, calcium
    and iron

    is 28g/d (1/3 of that is 9.3 g protein 1.5 oz
    turkey breast)
  • ¼ RDA for Breakfast
  • Must follow Dietary Guidelines for Americans
    SMI Review - ? 30 kcal from fat, lt 10 from
    saturated fat

Why do they sell hot dogs and pizza?
  • Hot dogs are usually low-fat turkey dogs, Pizza
    is low-fat pizza, Gravy is usually fat-free or
    low fat

    gum, candy) not allowed to be sold in school
    cafeteria during meal periods

Why do kids eat/not eat certain foods?
  • The vending machine is quicker, we wont have to
    wait in line. (Availability)

  • It tastes funny. (Taste)
  • This food is good for you. (Health? Kids dont
    usually eat food for this reason)

  • Children will not automatically select healthy
  • In order to develop lifelong healthy eating
    patterns, children need to be introduced to a
    variety of nutritious foods in a positive manner.
  • The environment has to support these behaviors.

Eat Smart Goals
  • Goals of CATCH Eat Smart
  • Provide children with tasty lower fat, saturated
    fat, and sodium school meals
  • Maintain required levels of essential nutrients
    and student participation
  • Coordinate healthy messages with the rest of the

Four Target Areas of Eat Smart
  • Menu Planning
  • Food Purchasing
  • Food Preparation
  • Promotion

Food Purchasing
  • Pre-prepared foods from vendors (e.g. pizza and
    hamburger patties)
  • Produce/milk/other foods ingredients
  • Commodities supplied by Govt.
  • fruits and vegetables meats cheese or dry and
    canned beans fruit juices vegetable shortening
    and vegetable oils peanut products and others
  • Bonus commodities dried fruit, applesauce,
    turkey, frozen apricots

Food Preparation
  • Preparation Techniques
  • Bake potato products instead of frying
  • Use non-stick coating spray or pan liners instead
    of greasing pans
  • Reduce or eliminate fat and sodium added to
    pasta, vegetables, and rice
  • Defat ground beef
  • Make changes one step at a time

Food Production
  • Read and follow standardized recipes.
  • Measure ingredients precisely. DO NOT GUESS
    (even if its educated guessing!)
  • Serve using standard serving utensils

  • Eat Smart connects cafeteria to classrooms
  • Use the cafeteria as the place children learn
    about healthy eating and nutrition

  • GO Foods
  • GO foods contain the lowest amount of fat. GO
    foods are eaten more often than SLOW or WHOA
  • SLOW Foods
  • SLOW foods are higher in fat than GO foods and
    lower in fat than WHOA foods. SLOW foods are
    eaten less often than GO foods and more often
    than WHOA foods.
  • WHOA Foods
  • WHOA foods are the highest in fat of the three
    groups. WHOA foods are eaten less often than GO
    or SLOW foods. In addition, any of the Foods of
    Minimal Nutritional Value (FMNV) such as soda,
    gum, and candy are considered WHOA foods although
    they do not contain any fat.
