Welcome to School Nutrition!
Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand!
The School Nutrition Department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.
Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.
Nutrition Standards followed in preparing menus:
All menus are analyzed for nutrient content to ensure our nutrition goals are met.
The nutrient profile of new products is studied before consideration in adding items to our menus.
Whole grain and whole wheat bread products are offered daily.
Foods of minimal nutritional value are not available during meal times.
Healthy cooking methods and techniques are used to reduce fat and sodium and increase whole grains.
Fresh vegetables and fruits are offered daily
