School Nutrition

Millington Elementary and EA Harrold Elementary Schools have received the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Grant for 2019-2020

The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP) is a federally assisted program providing free fresh fruits and vegetables to children at eligible elementary schools during the school day. The goal of the FFVP is to introduce children to fresh fruits and vegetables, to include new and different varieties, and to increase overall acceptance and consumption of fresh, unprocessed produce among children. The FFVP also encourages healthier school environments by promoting nutrition education.


What makes up today’s school meals?

 We participate in “Offer vs. Serve” at both breakfast and lunch. That means we offer all the components that are needed, and the students can take or decline as they wish. At breakfast, we offer four components of which the student must choose a minimum of three. We offer a variety of bread/grain, fruit/vegetable and milk components. Menu items may account for one or two components. At lunch, we offer five components of which the student must choose a minimum of three and can take up to 5. Lunch components include meat/meat alternative, bread/grain, fruit, vegetable and milk. Once again, menu items may include more than one component; for example, a cheeseburger is both the meat/meat alternate and the grain. To purchase a reimbursable breakfast or lunch, one of the components chosen MUST be a fruit or vegetable at both meals. Extras are subject to a la carte pricing.

You might ask, how healthy is school lunch?

The answer to this is …very healthy!

 • In 2010 the “Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act” was released that applies to the National School Breakfast Program (NSBP) and the National School Lunch Program (NSLP)

 • All meals (breakfast and lunch) are based on a meal pattern. Each meal depending on age group must contain a certain number of calories, fat, sodium, fruit, vegetable (dark green, red/orange, beans/pea/legumes, starchy, and other categories, grains, meat/meat alternates (alternates include items such as cheese and yogurts), and fluid milk

• All juice served is 100% fruit juice with no added sugar

• All plain milk served is 1% and flavored milk is fat free

• All grain products are whole grain rich which means all grains offered need to contain 51% or more whole grain product.

• All items are oven baked, we do not fry anything 

A la carte items

We sell a variety of a la carte items at all schools.  All items sold follow the Smart Snack guideline laws as of 2014 which are as follows:
