School Nutrition Information

Why should schools control the foods and beverages they serve? By offering healthy foods and beverages schools encourage healthy eating habits because students' lifelong eating habits are greatly influenced by the types of foods and beverages available to them. Foods of good nutritional content including fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy foods, and low-grain products, should be available wherever and whenever food is sold or otherwise offered at school during the normal school day. When foods of minimal nutritional value are offered students quickly form poor eating habits. Healthy Snacks and Beverages The following is a list of options for healthy snacks and beverages, it is in no way a complete list.
