Welcome to the Department of Child Nutrition!


At Clinton Public School District, good nutrition and learning go hand in hand!

It's a proven fact that students who practice healthy habits can achieve their full academic potential, full physical and mental growth, and lifelong health and well being.

Mississippi has seen a 13% reduction in childhood obesity, and a big part of our continued success is keeping healthy foods and activity as part of our school day.
