School Nutrition and Wellness
February flew by and now we are jumping straight into March! 100 days of school and Spring Break are both right around the corner. Before you know it, Easter will be here.
March is National Nutrition Month which was started back in 1973 by Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
This is a great time to start looking at your health and the choices that you can make foe a healthier life style. With summer just around the corner what can you do with your family to be more active and enjoy a healthier lifestyle? Click on the link above with Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and see what possibilities await.
We will be out of school Starting March 18-22 for SPRING BREAK.
We work hard at meeting all the USDA guidelines in supporting proper nutrition and providing nutritious breakfast and lunches that will fuel your children's minds.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions that you might have in regards to your child's dietary needs. There is a form that is provided by the CDE for you and your pediatrician to fill out if in need of meal modifications. This covers food allergies, digestive issues, intolerances, etc. It is very important that if your child is not able to eat a food item that I have listed on the menu that a medical form is filled out and signed by your doctor. I am not able to modify your child's meals without that form. Please follow the link for instruction and a printable form: Medical Statement for Meal Modification.
We will be having our first School Nutrition Audit from the CDE/USDA on February 21 & 22, 2024. There will be representatives here at our school from the CDE on both days to interact with the students and to see how well our nutrition program is working. If you would like further information please contact me and I will be happy to answer any questions you might have.
