Please note, the menus and analysis are designed to meet the nutritional needs of healthy students. They are not intended for the use of medical decisions when dealing with specialty diets such as diabetes, soy or whey allergies. Please consult a physician for advice.
Parkway elementary and middle school students were introduced to a nutritional rating system called the "Dot Project" to help them make smarter food choices in the school cafeteria. The food is evaluated for its nutritional content and then assigned an easy-to-follow color-code:
Green: Best Choice
Yellow: Choose Occasionally
Red: Choose Rarely
A student will know that a salad (green) can be eaten every day, while a fruit crisp or cobbler (yellow) is fine once in a while and a piece of cake (red) should be eaten only on special occasions. Additionally, elementary students are getting an extra entree choice at lunch this year.
