* The Meat/Meat Alternate contribution for the chicken is calculated on an ounce to ounce basis. If using a product that requires more than 1 ounce to meet the ounce equivalent, the recipe will require adjustment in order to meet the stated M/MA contribution.
* The Meat/Meat Alternate contribution for the ham is based on an average of a 1.5-oz. serving crediting as 1 oz. Check the Food Buying Guide or your product’s formulation statement for crediting information.
