Illinois Food Requirement Calculator


Do foods sold to students meet the Illinois food requirements?
This calculator will help you to determine if a certain food item meets the Illinois food requirements.1 Enter the nutrition information on the Nutrition Facts label below and click "Get Results".

Note: Reimbursable meals are regulated by Federal regulation. This calculator is for determining the compliance of food items sold to students in grades 8 or below before or during the school day outside the food service area or within the food service areas other than during meal periods. The food requirements allow the sale of all food items that are nuts, seeds, nut butters, eggs, cheese packaged for individual sale, fruit or non-fried vegetables, or low-fat yogurt products and therefore this calculator is not intended for those foods.
