Tyson Whole-grain chickenTyson Food Service knows school foodservice operators also need to pass tests from time to time. That’s why Tyson developed 11 new, whole-grain breaded chicken products that meet new federal nutrition standards for the National School Lunch Program. Tyson says it employs a nutrition team with registered dietitians, as well a “Kid Tested, Kid Approved” insights program to develop student-endorsed foods. New items include chicken patties, sticks, tenders and chunks, as well as popcorn chicken. Tyson says its school foodservice line includes whole-grain breaded foods, as well as products with reduced sodium and fat. In fact, 96% of Tyson products for the school lunch program already meet the USDA’s initial requirements of the new standards.
