Sample Menus

This appendix contains 2 weeks of sample menus that conform to the recommended Meal Requirements for breakfast and lunch and a snack. In some cases in the menus that follow, food descriptions are more limited than they should be when planning actual menus. The committee did not have access to a complete, up-to-date nutrient database that covers all the many food products available for use in meals, and these products differ depending on location and where the providers purchase their food. See discussion of limitations of the nutrient analyses in Chapter 8. The food items used in the menus were derived from the U.S. Department of Agriculture Food and Nutrient Database for Dietary Studies.
