    What is Child Nutrition Services doing to promote CATCH?
    Eat Smart Foods
    The EAT SMART School Nutrition Program is the name of the school food service component of the CATCH program. The EAT SMART Guidelines categorize our MISD menus into "SLOW, GO, and WHOA" categories based on the fat and/or sugar content of each menu item.

    Go - Slow - Whoa list from CATCH curriculum 
    GO-SLOW-WHOA
    GO foods include primarily fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean meats and lower-fat dairy products. These GO foods are lower in fat and/or sugar, and/or they are whole foods (less processed).
    SLOW foods are higher in fat and/or sugar and/or are more processed than GO foods.
    WHOA foods are highest in fat and/or sugar and are the most processed.
