Grain/Bread Calculator

Confused on serving sizes for grain/breads? Use the calculator below to determine how much of a grain/bread item you should serve each child to meet USDA Food Program requirements. You'll need the nutrition facts panel. Remember, grain/bread products must be enriched or whole grain to credit on the Food Program.

STEP ONE:
What type of food is it?

* Counts as a dessert item. We recommend you limit desserts to twice per week.

STEP TWO:
How many units are in a serving size?

(Hint: you will find that information on the Nutrition Facts Panel at the very top after serving size.) Enter a "1" if you are calculating an item such as a granola bar that has only one unit in a serving size.

STEP THREE:
What is the weight of a serving size in grams?

(See the Nutrition Facts Panel next to serving size.)
