Case Studies

In 1980, the United States Department of Health and Human Services and the United States Department of Agriculture established “The Dietary Guidelines for Americans”. These guidelines are published every 5 years and are based on scientific studies to generate a set of healthy recommendations to live by. The overall goal of the guidelines is to promote health and lower a person’s risk for certain diseases such as obesity, heart disease, diabetes, and some cancers. They do this by encouraging a person to eat healthier foods and to become physically active most days of the week. Also, the guidelines advise that people balance the calories they are taking in with the calories that they expend in physical activity. learn more...

STOP USING YOUR OLD MENUS! A NEW LAW IMPOSES NEW NUTRITIONAL & MENU PLAN REQUIREMENTS ON FEDERAL BREAKFAST AND LUNCH PROGRAM CONTRACTORS.
  • Beginning July school year 2013-14, the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act (HHFKA) requires improvements to school meals and more frequent monitoring of school meals by State Government Agencies.
  • Government Agencies encourage Program Contractors administering the National School Lunch (NSLP) and School Breakfast (SBP) Programs to conduct a thorough nutrient analysis or nutrient assessment of their existing menus and meal plans.
  • Continued meal service not in compliance with regulations will result in fiscal action taken against Program Contractors by the State Government Agency after their scheduled audit.
BONUS MONEY! A COMPLIANT MENU = AN EXTRA SIX-CENTS REIMBURSEMENT FOR LUNCH MEALS SERVED.
  • Government Agencies have implemented an early meal and menu plan certification option for Program Contractors.
  • Program Contractors who have had their menus and meal plans certified by Government Agencies are entitled to an extra 6 cents per meal for every reimbursable lunch meal served and claimed.
  • Compliance with this new regulation IS mandatory, and failure to comply with the new requirements will result in fiscal action against the Program Contractor.
