Maximum!

Objectives
• Review meat/meat alternate ranges under
the New Meal Pattern
• Learn how to use the Food Buying Guide
to determine meat/meat alternate servings
from a recipe.
• Learn how to convert a recipe’s
legume/bean servings from meat alternate
to vegetable component contribution.
New Meal Pattern

5 days         8-10         9-10         9-10         10-12
4 days        6.5-8         7-8          7-8          8-9.5
7 days        11-14       12.5-14      12.5-14        14-17
M/MA          Vegetable
• You may have recipes where the bean
ingredient can be converted to a vegetable
component contribution from a meat/meat
alternate contribution.
• Burritos, tacos, chili…
Step 1
Determine the
M/MA component
contributions for all
M/MA ingredients
using the Food
•   Column 1   Food Item
•   Column 2   Purchase Unit (#, can, etc)
•   Column 3   Number of Servings/Unit
•   Column 4   Serving Size
•   Column 5   Number of Purchase Units
for 100
Crediting Meat/Meat Alternate
• Multiply the amount of each M/MA
ingredient by column 3
– Example: Bean and Beef Burrito Recipe that
yields 91 servings and contains the following
meat/meat alternates:

• 8 lbs 80/20 ground beef
• 2 # dehydrated refried beans
• 3 lbs shredded low fat cheddar cheese
Crediting Meat/Meat Alternate
• 8 lbs 80/20 Ground Beef, USDA
– Page I-16

There are 11.8 -1 oz. servings of cooked, lean meat per
pound (columns 3 & 4)

11.8 x 8 lbs = 94.4 – 1 oz servings M/MA
(column 3 x ingredient amount in recipe)
Crediting Meat/Meat Alternate
• 2 # bag of dehydrated refried beans
– Page 1-12

There are 20.5 - ¼ cup servings per pound
(¼ cup beans/legumes = 1 oz. M/MA)

20.5 x 2 = 41 – ¼ cup servings
(column 3 x ingredient amount in recipe)
Crediting Meat/Meat Alternate

• 3 lbs shredded, low fat cheddar cheese
– Page 1-23

There are 16 – 1 oz. servings of M/MA per lb.

16 x 3 lbs. = 48 – 1 oz. servings M/MA
(column 3 x ingredient amount in recipe)
Step 2: Remove the   beans as a M/MA and
determine the new M/MA contribution per
serving.
Beef   94.4
Cheese 48.0
142.4 – 1 oz. servings

142 ÷ 91(recipe yield) = 1.56 oz/serving

1.5 oz. M/MA per burrito
Step 3: Determine the vegetable
contribution.
Beans: 41 – ¼ cup servings

82 - 1/8 cup servings
(1/8 c = minimum amount that can be credited)

Recipe yield is 91, so cannot credit as
vegetable
Let’s do one together!
• Step 1: Determine the M/MA component
contributions for all M/MA ingredients
a) Multiply each ingredient amount by column
3 for 1 oz. servings of M/MA or ¼ cup
servings for beans.
Step 2: Remove the beans as a M/MA
and determine the new M/MA contribution
per serving

a) Add together all 1 oz. servings
b) Divide by recipe yield = new M/MA
contribution per serving of recipe
Step 3: Determine the vegetable
contribution.
a) Add ¼ cup servings of beans
b) Multiply by 2 = 1/8 cup creditable
servings
c) Divide this number by recipe yield =
creditable 1/8 cup servings/serving
– This number must be greater than 0 to credit
as vegetable

You can also maximize your M/MA allowance by
grouping recipes together that have the highest
contribution of M/MA:
High School: 10-12 oz. (this week: 12 = min and max)
Main Dish   Monday   Tuesday   Wednesday   Thursday   Friday

Choice #1   2 oz.    3 oz.     2 oz.       3 oz.      2 oz.

Choice #2   2 oz.    3 oz.     2 oz.       3 oz.      2 oz.
Compare: both have 12 max.
High School A: 6 x 2 oz. servings & 4 x 3 oz. servings
Main Dish    Monday   Tuesday   Wednesday   Thursday   Friday

Choice #1    2 oz.    3 oz.     2 oz.       3 oz.      2 oz.

Choice #2    2 oz.    3 oz.     2 oz.       3 oz.      2 oz.

High School B: 8 x 2 oz. servings & 2 x 3 oz. servings
Main Dish   Monday   Tuesday   Wednesday   Thursday Friday
Choice #1   2 oz.    2 oz.     3 oz.       2 oz.      2 oz.

Choice #2   3 oz.    2 oz.     2 oz.       2 oz.      2 oz.
