Nutrition Information

Nutrition in OUSD

In OUSD, all school meals are legally required to meet nutrition standards that are set by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). This means that every item on our menus was curated to follow the School Breakfast Program meal pattern and the School Lunch Program meal pattern. These meal patterns inform school food providers what nutrients they must offer to k-12 children on a daily and weekly basis.
