The suggested menu features eggrolls. The following are examples of CN labeled eggroll products that provide at least 1 ounce equivalent Grain and 1/8 cup Other Vegetable, as required per the suggested menu. TDA does not endorse any specific product; any product that meets meal pattern requirements may be used.

Examples of eggroll products that may be used:
  • Minh, Whole Grain Chicken Egg Roll, Product code 69461, CN Number 085076
  • Minh, Whole Grain Pork and Vegetable Egg Roll, Product code 69204, CN Number 085750

The menus provided meet the food component requirements for the NSLP.  These menus have not been analyzed for adherence to the weekly nutrient standards applicable to the meal patterns.  These analyses are based on “planned” number of servings in an individual meal program, and those numbers cannot be determined for each NSLP program site.
