School lunches today are nothing like years past. We use low fat cheese, fat free salad dressings, fat free gravy mixes, whole grain breads and pasta, skim chocolate milk, 1% white milk, low sodium vegetables and proteins, along with many choices of fresh fruit and vegetables. The students have several entrée choices daily.
USDA has established practical, science-based nutrition standards for snack foods and beverages sold to children at school during the school day. The standards allow schools to offer healthier snack foods to children, while limiting junk food.

The health of today’s school environment continues to improve. Students across the country are now offered healthier school lunches with more fruits, vegetables and whole grains. The Smart Snacks in School standards build on those healthy advancements and ensure that kids are only offered tasty and nutritious foods during the school day.

Some of our snacks such as Scooby fruit snacks, Welchs fruit snacks, Pop Tarts, Graham Cracker items appear to be the same sold in stores but their ingredients are changed slightly to meet the Smart Snack requirements. The manufacturers created the same product but a different formula.
The fruit snack products have apple puree as the first ingredient, the ones they sale in the store are not equivalent to these.
The grahams are whole grain, low fat and low sugar, the same with pop tarts, Rice Krispy, and brownie. To view any of these and other labels please call the Child Nutrition office.  
 If you want to limit the days when your child may buy snacks let us know and we will add a restriction to their lunch account.  
We are proud to serve your child and work hard to provide the best quality food.  
Best Regards,

Adam Whitten
