  • Offer Versus Serve Program

    Offer Versus Serve is a concept to help our school reduce plate waste and provide students the opportunity to select foods they prefer, while maintaining their consumption of a wide variety of nutritious foods.

    The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 has initiated changes to the school meal pattern requirements. A minimum ½ cup serving of fruit or vegetable must be selected to count toward a meal. Students may choose to take a minimum of three food components and a maximum of five. This includes: 1 serving of meat or meat alternate, 1 serving of bread or bread/grain alternate, 2 servings of fruit and/or vegetables (or a combination of both), and 8 ounces of milk. Students may choose to select all five items.

    Our School Food Service Manager, Ladine Wong, post signs that display the choices for the day prior to children entering the lunch line. Students are encouraged to try foods that is offered on the serving line. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) believes that if students make their own food choices, they are more likely to eat what they select.

    How Parents Can Help!
    You have the power to encourage your child(ren) to build a healthy plate at school and home.

    • Review the school menu with your kids and encourage them to try new foods, especially the healthy foods offered.
    • When your child gets home from school, ask what was served and what (s)he ate for lunch.
    • Your child picks up all of your attitudes and behaviors –including your eating habits. Eat meals with your child(ren) whenever possible. Let your child see you enjoying fruits, vegetables, and whole grains at meals and snacks.
    • Grocery shopping can teach your children about food and nutrition. Discuss where vegetables, fruits, grains, dairy and protein foods come from with your child. Help your children make healthy choices.

    Well-nourished kids are ready to learn and they do better in class. Together we can make a difference and help our keiki develop healthy habits for life. Yum!
