Nutrition Services

St. Anthony - New Brighton School's Student Nutrition Program offers delicious breakfasts and lunches for students. St. Anthony - New Brighton School District shares a nutrition program with Roseville Area School District.

The cafeteria is an extension of the classroom and is used to educate students on how to make a balanced meal. All meals feature whole grains, lean proteins, fruits, vegetables, and low fat dairy modeled after the Dietary Guidelines for Americans’ MyPlate.

In addition, the program offers local farm-to-school options as often as possible including a twice a month, all-local menu sourced within 300 miles of our district called Minnesota Thursday.


What's in a meal?

Breakfast consists of an entrée with whole grains, lean protein, fruit, milk, and 100% juice. Students have a choice of at least two options for lunch at each site. Along with the entrée, an assortment of fruits, veggies, and milk choices are offered. There is always a vegetarian option.

Plant-Powered Protein

Watch our menu for an increase in plant-powered protein options. As the student demand for vegetarian and vegan options increases, we are continuing to introduce new items at all grade levels. Some of our plant-powered protein options will include:
 
  • Veggie burgers
  • Pea protein nachos & bolognese sauce
  • Seed butters
  • Hummus
  • Tofu
  • Tempeh
  • Beans, peas & lentils

Better Food Initiative

Our districts are part of a national movement to elevate the quality of all ingredients served on our menus. In collaboration with school nutrition leaders and the Center of Science in the Public Interest, we follow the Ingredient Guide for Better School Food Purchasing when selecting ingredients or products to place on the menu. We have already begun the work in eliminating ingredients such as artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives.

 

Farm to School

Our Minnesota Thursday initiative featuring an all-local menu sourced within 300 miles will be offered twice a month this year. This initiative, which began in 2017,  helps support the local economy, supports our local farmers, producers, and ranchers, and offers our students fresh, seasonal options. Mark your calendars for the first few menu days of the school year and stay tuned for more dates!
