Welcome to School Nutrition Services!


Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand.

The Nutrition Services 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.

Kannapolis City Schools School Nutrition Program 

Dear Parent, Guardian: 

Your child’s school day just got healthier! School lunches now include more fruits, vegetables, and whole grain-rich foods; only fat-free or low-fat milk; “right-size” meals with portions designed for a child’s age; and less saturated fat, trans fat and sodium. The changes in school meals, the first in 15 years, are based on the latest nutritional guidelines.

Here are some important facts about the new school meals: 
  • The new school lunch provides 1/3 of the average daily calorie needs for kids by age.
  • Some highly active students, like athletes, may need more calories. It is important that children consume nutrient dense foods like fruits and vegetables as these nutrients are vital to the health and wellness of our nation’s youth.

Your child can learn good habits for life by making healthy food choices and getting proper exercise now. This year is a transition year as schools implement these new standards and work together with parents, to ensure that every child, in every community across America, has access to healthy and nutritious meals. Encourage them to try new foods and eat the healthy food offered. Reinforce healthy eating by offering similar new foods at home. 

Keep updated on the changes at http://www.fns.usda.gov/healthierschoolday
 
Regards, 
The KCS School Nutrition Services Department
