Franklin Township menus are written based on the Traditional method of menu development.
In 2010, the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act was passed by Congress. It brought changes to the way Child Nutrition Departments could menu breakfast and lunch for students. Star Express Child Nutrition Program must now menu based on the following food components:
- Meat/Meat Alternate
- Whole Grain
A breakfast consists of an entree, a fruit and milk. Lunch consists of an entree, 2 servings of fruit or vegetables and milk. Weekly average requirements for calories, saturated fat and sodium must also be followed. Only nonfat and low-fat milks are offered daily at ALL Franklin Township schools. Fresh fruit and vegetables are also offered daily at ALL Franklin Township schools.
