Welcome to Colonial Nutrition Services!

At Colonial Schools, we know that good nutrition and learning go hand in hand!  The Child Nutrition Program of the Colonial School District is committed to providing well-balanced meals that contribute to the health and well-being of our students.

The Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of a Registered Dietitian, Food and Nutrition Professionals who are dedicated to students' health, well-being and their ability to learn.  Breakfast and lunch are available in all schools.

All 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 appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students. The USDA-United States Department of Agriculture- has developed New Meal Patterns for School Nutrition Departments, see the USDA Meal pattern here


The Healthier US School Challenge is a voluntary certification recognizing schools that have created healthier school environments through promotion of nutrition and physical activity.  Colonial School District went for the gold and became the first district in the state of Delaware to win the gold award.   

We would like to celebrate all those involved in making this happen and celebrate the achievement of being an exemplary district that exceed meal pattern requirements by providing nutrition education, physical education and activity as well as abiding by the district’s wellness policy and all HUSSC criteria.
