Current federal standards include:
- Portion sizes and calories individualized for each grade group (K-8, 9-12)
- Fat free or low fat milk varieties
- Larger servings and more variety of fruits and vegetables
- More whole grain products such as breads, pastas and rice
- Students must select a minimum of ½ cup of fruit or vegetable on their tray at lunch.
In addition, the District has increased purchases of whole grain items. Three types of pizzas offered on school menus contain whole grain flour; a new whole-wheat muffin was introduced recently for breakfast; and many of the rolls and breads are multigrain or whole grain.
We are always working to offer Williamsville students healthy and nutritious school lunch choices. School meals are a great value and a huge convenience for busy families. Encouraging your child to choose a well-balanced school lunch will teach them to make smart food choices and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

The Child Nutrition Program also strives to be a nutrition education learning lab for students and staff alike, working on a District Health and Wellness Policy and participating in student and staff wellness initiatives.
