Welcome to School Nutrition!

 

*UPDATE - USDA Secreatary of Agriculture, Sonny Perdue, has just announced in a press conference the USDA will extend the waiver flexibility to allow schools to participate in the summer nutrition programs through the end of the school year, allowing every child to receive meals at no cost.

 

Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand.

The Davie County School Nutrition Department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to your 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.

Davie County Schools operates under the National Breakfast and Lunch Program. USDA has updated the school meal patterns, the first major overhaul in years.  School meals emphasis is on fresh fruits,vegetables and whole grains. Sodium levels will be reduced in stages over the next 10 years. Calorie ranges have been established based on grade groupings for breakfast and lunch. A copy of the new requirements are listed below.

All reimbursable school lunches selected by students must include a fruit or a vegetable. Students can have unlimited fruits and vegetables choices on their first trip through the serving line at no cost. To encourage variety, students can only choose one serving of a potato product. To help students "Build a Healthy School Lunch", we have menu boards displayed at all cafeterias that breaks the menu items down into the fruits, vegetables, proteins and grains.
