Northwest ISD Pre-Kindergarten menus must uphold all government regulations set by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and National School Lunch Program (NSLP) regulations. Pre-Kindergarten regulations ensure menus encourage healthy portion sizes and adequate nutrition.

Our Pre-Kindergarten breakfast menus are the same as the Elementary School breakfast menu. Pre-Kindergarten lunch menus follow a different meal pattern than the Elementary School lunch menu.

Pre-Kindergarten lunch menus are different from the Elementary School menu.  Pre-Kindergarten lunch menus:

Only offer white milk.
Only offer three entrée choices.
Don’t allow students to choose their side items.
Require all fruits, veggies, and milk listed on the menu must be placed on the child’s tray.

Pre-Kindergarten lunch menus are posted at  To view the menu, go to your child’s school and click on the lunch menu.  The entire Pre-Kindergarten lunch menu is under the “Pre-K” header.
