SNA has released an updated version of the Meal Pattern Companion Guide as of October 2012. This guide has more menus to serve as examples from Manatee County Florida. This revised version is now available at www.schoolnutrition.org/mealpattern, along with other tools and resources to aid in your understanding of the meal pattern. This guide aims to assist in the challenges of implementing the new meal pattern requirements going into effect this fall. It provides you with sample menus, resources and other valuable tools needed to interpret and implement the new meal pattern regulations. This guide was pulled together by an SNA Ad Hoc Meal Pattern Working Group, which consists of school nutrition operators, state agency officials, industry and USDA representatives. The first version was unveiled in July 2012 at ANC Denver.
