School Nutrition Information
Milwaukee Public Schools’ menus comply with the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 and meet all United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) meal-pattern requirements.
We provide our students with healthy, local, and fresh food. We strive to teach our students a way of eating that promotes well-being for the individual, community, and the earth.
We follow federal nutrition guidelines serving more fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and low-fat dairy than ever before. School nutrition professional prepare and serve balanced, nutritious meals in age-appropriate portion sizes that provided needed nutrition and promote healthy childhood weights. School lunch provides one-third of the recommended dietary allowances of protein, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, iron, calcium and calories. School breakfast provides one-fourth of the recommended calories and nutrients per day.
Please plan your child’s lunch with good nutrition in mind. Parents of students with asthma and allergic reactions to certain foods need to consult the office and kitchen manager. Special dietary meals will be considered. Candy and soda are not allowed.
Pre-Pay Your Child’s Account
Go to MyPaymentsPlus.com to pre-pay your child’s account or check on their purchases. MyPaymentsPlus accepts credit or debit cards or electronic checks.
The prepayment system shortens the wait time in line and decreases incidents of lost money. The money is then deducted from the child’s account each time they go through the line. Since school lunches are now provided at no cost, the money is used only to purchase milk for those students bringing a packed lunch to school. Cash or checks made out to the school should include your child’s name and room number.
