School Meals

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

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.
