Child Nutrition (Food Service)
Our district, through federally assisted meal programs, provides nutritionally balanced, low-cost, or free meals to students each school day. Children who are hungry find it hard to stay alert and participate in their classroom experiences, so we help close the readiness gap with a good breakfast before classes begin. We also plan school lunches that provide one-third of the recommended dietary allowances for school-age children. Menus include a daily variety of fresh fruits, vegetables, low-fat milk, and whole-grain products. Also, we've made changes in food specifications and preparation to lower fat, sodium, and sugar content.
