Serving School Meals to Preschoolers

Sometimes, schools must serve meals to a variety of grades at the same time. This is usually due to operational constraints, such as time and space. While this is allowed, there are good reasons to avoid co-mingled meal service. Learn the differences between preschool and K-5 meal patterns and get ideas on how to avoid co-mingled meal service. 

  1. Explore meal pattern considerations when serving preschool students in a school setting.
  2. Understand co-mingling when serving preschool students.
  3. Hear from State Agency and Sponsor staff regarding on-the ground experiences with serving preschoolers in a school setting.
