* Important Note Concerning Negative Balances in Student Lunch Money Accounts *
Students who have lunch accounts overdrawn by $15 or more will not be able to choose the lunch options listed on the daily menu, but instead will receive and be charged for lunch consisting of a cheese sandwich, a side and milk.
Once the negative balance is paid and the account has sufficient funds for lunch purchases, the student will be able to buy lunch of their choice from the daily menu.

Menu items include healthy ingredients, larger portions of fruits and vegetables. Students will be offered foods from five food groups (grain, fruit, vegetable, protein and dairy) and they must take at least 3 of the 5 menu items. In addition, they must always take at least ½ cup of a fruit or vegetable, everyday. Please be proactive and talk with your child about the USDA ChooseMyPlate and these guidelines. We will use “choosemyplate” as an aid to try and help students put into practice the guidelines needed to help them build healthier meals. For more information on ChooseMyPlate, please visit www.choosemyplate.gov
If you have any questions, please feel free to call your food service general manager.

Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act and Lake Villa School District #41
Here at Lake Villa Community Consolidated School District #41, we are continously making similar changes to our menus and will do so in the future. Many of our menu items are now made with healthier ingredients such as whole grains, we have been modifying recipes to include less sodium and saturated fat, we have switched to only 1% or non-fat milk, our snacks and beverages meet nutritional guidelines established for lower sugar, fat and sodium, and our menus include more fruits and vegetables. Some changes your student has noticed over the past school year…
Every student will be required to take 1/2 cup of fruit or vegetable each day to make a reimbursable meal.
A legume (beans) will be offered at least once a week
French fries will always be baked, not fried.
All snacks and beverages will be compliant with the Alliance for a Healthier Generation (AHG) guidelines. AHG is a joint collaboration between the American Heart Association and the William J. Clinton Foundation. We are awaiting additional regulations from USDA that specify nutrition guidelines for snacks and beverages.
