Nutrition and Allergen Information
We welcome the opportunity to provide parents with information that will allow your child to participate in your school’s meal programs. The information provided is based on current information from manufacturers, recipes for MCPS produced items, and nutritional analysis software.
Please be aware that there are factors that may affect a product’s actual nutritional value and/or ingredient composition at any given time:
- Manufacturers’ formulations may change without notice.
- USDA food products may become available at any time during the year and may replace a purchased item.
- Product brands may change during the year as new bids are approved.
- Schools may be using inventory from a previous bid or manufacturer.
- MCPS recipes may change during the school year.
- A la carte snack items vary from school to school, so check with the cafeteria manager at your student’s school for specific information and/or to restrict purchases.
This information is updated prior to the start of each school year, and is updated as changes occur. Please check periodically for changes and/or updates.
