Healthy Meals = Healthy Kids
Children who eat a nutritious breakfast and lunch every day learn better in school and are less distracted.
Our students health and wellness are of utmost importance. We have made many changes to our meal offerings to increase nutrition above State and Federal regulations, as well as increasing taste. It is important to offer foods that students love but don't realize are more healthy for them.
State and Federal regulations mandate nutrition requirements.
When your child eats meals at school, you can feel good about the nutrients he or she receives.
Availability - We attempt to make sure all menu items are available when students go through the line. However, forecasting efforts to control waste and the fluidity of student choices may mean that some food items may run out. This is why we offer a variety of choices.
Every month we highlight a new Pick of the Month fruit or vegetable on our lunch menu. This is decided through the Fruit & Veggie Promotion group, so that area organizations promote local fruits and vegetables in their meal planning while encouraging healthy eating.
If you have any question regarding this program, please feel free to contact the School District Food Service Office at (541) 757-5859.
