Our Highland Lakes students will continue to have a variety of fruits and vegetables to choose from in our cafeteria for breakfast and lunch. Students will still be required to choose a minimum of one serving of a fruit or one vegetable for a complete breakfast or lunch meal. There will now be a new maximum of up to two servings of fruit and two servings of vegetables. Posters are up in our Panther cafeteria to notify students of these changes.Lunch
A free app is available from nutrislice.com to view the nutrient content of meals served.
