Described in detail are alternate bread items (for example, bagels and doughnuts) which may be used to meet the bread requirements; restrictions on the sale of extra food items during serving periods; numbers of suggested food choices for breakfast and lunch; and tips for reducing plate waste and for increasing student participation in the School Nutrition Program.
