Components of a Food Tray

Williamson County Schools participates in the “Offer vs. Serve” program for all grade levels. This is a USDA program allowing students to choose their own meals. The meals are broken down into components, and the students are required to take a certain number of components to have the meal qualify as a lunch or breakfast.

Breakfast: For a meal to count as a breakfast, the student must choose a minimum of two food items. There is a maximum of three food items that a student may choose for breakfast. None of the items may be duplicates. There are three food components that make up a “School Breakfast:”

  • Fruits
  • Grains
  • Milk

Lunch: For a child’s tray to count as a lunch, they must select at least three different food components. If desired, they can take all five of the components. If a child only chooses to take the minimum amount of components, one of the items MUST be a fruit or vegetable. There are five components that make up a “School Lunch:”

  • One Entree – Protein
  • Vegetables
  • Fruits
  • Grains
  • One Milk or Juice

WCS Food and Nutrition Services will make modifications and substitutions to the regular school meals for a student with a disability that restricts his or her diet. The WCS Special Diet Prescription Form must be completed and signed by a licensed physician for a student with a disability before the school cafeteria can provide any modifications or substitutions. The completed form must be faxed to the WCS Registered Dietitian at 615-472-5614. The school cafeteria staff will prepare the meal along with the other meals being served that day.

Currently WCS does not offer this type of program. Please feel free to contact our office at 615-472-4990 and we will be happy to find the closest school district to your home that is offering this program over the summer months.
