This new school year our schools will be making changes to our entire school environment as we work toward becoming certified as an award-winning school by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's voluntary Healthier US School Challenge. The Healthier US School Challenge nationally recognizes schools at the Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Gold of Distinction award levels for: 1) serving school lunches that reflect the Dietary Guidelines for Americans; 2) providing foods and beverages that are lower in fat, added sugar, and sodium; 3) offering nutrition education for students to learn to make healthy choices; and 4) providing physical education and opportunities for students to be physically active during the day.
We believe that children who learn to make healthy food choices and be physically active at school will continue these habits into adulthood. If you would like more information about the Healthier US Challenge or have any questions about the plans we have to provide a healthier school environment, please contact the Child Nutrition office.
