ABOUT

Your child's school day just got healthier!

School lunches now include more fruits, vegetables, and whole grain-rich foods; only fat-free or low-fat milk; “right-size” meals with portions designed for a child’s age; and less saturated fat, trans fat, and sodium.  The changes in school meals, the first in 15 years, are based on the latest nutritional guidelines. 


Fuel Our Future!
Your child can learn good habits for life by making healthy food choices and getting proper exercise now. We’re continuing to implement these new standards and work together with parents, to ensure that every child, in every community across America, has access to healthy and nutritious meals. Encourage them to try new foods and to eat healthy food offered. Proper nutrition in the school-age years can reinforce lifelong eating habits that contribute to a student’s overall wellbeing. Emphasize healthy eating by trying to offer similar new foods at home. This will allow them to grow and learn to their fullest potential, and eventually, go on to lead long healthy lives.
