EXHIBIT A: School Lunch and Breakfast Whole Grain-Rich Ounce Equivalency (oz eq) Requirements For School Meal Programs Calculating Grain Ounce Equivalency Using Exhibit A This is a label from a popular cereal bar containing fruit. The label states: Child Nutrition Program: 1 bread equivalent Is this acceptable? NO! If we dont have a CN label or a PFS, we use Exhibit A

to calculate the ounce equivalency based on the weight of the whole product. Which category on Exhibit A would we use? Group E - cereal bar containing fruit How many grams is equal to a one ounce equivalent in Group E? 69 grams How many grams does the cereal bar weigh? 37 grams Calculating Grain Ounce Equivalency

Using Exhibit A Calculation: 37 grams 69 grams = 0.53623 Always round down to the nearest quarter 0.53623 = 0.50 This cereal bar is actually 0.5 ounce equivalent. You would have to serve two cereal bars to equal the required one ounce equivalent of grain for the school breakfast program. Breakfast Sausage Standardized Recipes
