Sodexo Ala Carte Selections

Parents/Guardians – Is your student snacking during breakfast or lunch?  If so…is it a “Smart Snack”? At Dexter McCarty​ we ensure that all ala carte snacks and beverages are compliant with the Healthy Hungry Free Kids Act, which means that ala carte items sold during the school day must meet USDA nutritional standards.  During breakfast and lunch, students at our middle schools are offered and allowed to purchase a maximum of two ala carte items to enhance their school meal or their meal from home.   

By providing students additional options during meal service we hope to encourage students to make healthier choices that still provide the nutrition needed to be successful in the classroom.  


If you wish to limit your student from purchasing ala carte snacks, please contact your kitchen manager at


Padre(s)/Guardián(es) - ¿Su estudiante merienda durante el desayuno o el almuerzo? Si es así ... ¿es un Bocadillo Inteligente (Smart Snack?)

En Dexter McCarty, nos aseguramos de que todos los bocadillos y bebidas ala carte cumplan con la Ley de Niños Saludables y Libres de Hambre (Healthy Hungry Free Kids Act), cual significa que los artículos de comida, ala carte, que son vendidos durante el día escolar deben cumplir con los estándares nutricionales del USDA. Durante el desayuno y el almuerzo, nuestros estudiantes de la escuela secundaria se les permite comprar un máximo de dos artículos de comida de ala carta para mejorar su comida escolar o su comida que traen de casa. Al proveerles a nuestros estudiantes opciones adicionales durante el tiempo de comida, esperamos animarlos a tomar decisiones más saludables, cuales proporcionan la nutrición necesaria para tener éxito en clase.


Si desea limitar los bocadillos ala carte que compran su(s) estudiante(s), por favor comuníquese con su gerente de cocina al:
