Welcome to School Nutrition!

 

Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand!

The 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.

You can view our District Slide Show on the left-hand side about halfway down to see what's happening in the Nutrition Department.

                                                                                                                    

The School Nutrition Department celebrated World School Milk Day at the end of September. We kicked off the celebration with Mayfield Dairies Maggie the Milk Cow milk consumption challenge. Out of the ten schools in the district, Youngs Grove Elementary consumed the most MILK last school year. With their win, they were able to visit with Maggie outside their school for several days. Starting this school year all schools have been challenged to see who can consume the most MILK from August-May so Maggie can visit their school next September!
