Food for Thought: Tacos


By Patti Rigby, Child Nutrition Director at Carbon School District

Kids love tacos. It’s true at home, at restaurants and at school. Our tacos deliver on taste and nutrition. The shell meets USDA’s whole grain requirement while the taco meat and shredded cheese cover the meat/protein requirements. The legume and orange/red vegetable needs are fulfilled by the side of beans and the ½ cup of salsa.

The true test of a good school lunch is that it meets USDA guidelines and that kids love it!
