HEALTHIER SCHOOL LUNCHES
Whether your child takes a packed lunch or purchases a meal card for cafeteria lunches, it's important that she consume a healthy meal while away from home. Proper nutrition is essential to a growing child's development, and each student deserves a choice of foods that are not only appealing but also good for their bodies.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one in five children between the ages of 6 and 19 suffers from obesity. Ensuring that students consume a healthier lunch is the best way to combat this statistic.
Healthy foods contain nutrients that feed a student's brain and allowing him to perform better in school. A study from UC Berkeley published in 2017 confirmed this, showing that the schools holding contracts with healthier school-lunch vendors had students that performed better on state tests than those who served less healthy lunches.
When you do something for a long period of time, it eventually becomes a habit. This is true for students as well. Being provided healthy lunches at school while growing up can help build good eating habits for the future. Once teens graduate, they will have regularly consumed, over the course of several years, a well-balanced meal that fueled their bodies and contributed to better health. As a result, it will be much easier for them to continue making wise food choices when heading off to college.
If your child has a food allergy we will try to accommodate them. A signed doctor's statement for the current year stating the allergy and recommendations for altering meals must be on file in the food service office the building the child attends.
