Whole Grain Resource

The Whole Grain Resource for the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs is a comprehensive guide to determine whether a grain product is whole grain-rich or can credit as enriched in school meals. This revised resource reflects current regulation as it pertains to serving grains in school meals. It is an important reference for anyone involved in planning school meals or training others to plan school meals, such as program operators, menu planners, and state agencies. The Whole Grain Resource provides examples of various grain products often served in schools and walks the user through the process of determining whether products are whole grain-rich, creditable as enriched, or not creditable.
