Health & Wellness
Our schools work collaboratively with the School Food Services Branch to address five nutritional guidelines:
All reimbursable meals and snacks must meet federal nutrient standards as required by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
All foods and beverages sold or served by the school or at school-sponsored events comply with the current USDA Dietary Guidelines.
Nutrition information for food and beverages is readily available near the point of purchase.
Food and beverage providers promote positive nutritional messages on school property.
Meals served at school feature fresh and minimally processed fruits and vegetables from local sources to the greatest extent possible.The school promotes the importance of students starting the day with a healthy breakfast, including participation in the School Breakfast Program. The school promotes the importance of students eating a nutritious lunch and healthy snacks, including participation in the National School Lunch Program and After School Snack Program (if applicable).
