Healthy Changes in 2013-2014
The Sheboygan Area School District cafeterias are meeting tough new federal nutrition standards for school meals, ensuring that meals are healthy and well-balanced and provide students all the nutrition they need to succeed at school. Now is a great time to encourage your kids to choose school lunch!
Smart Snacks in School Guidelines
USDA recently published practical, science-based nutrition standards for snack foods and beverages sold to children at school during the school day. The standards, required by the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, will allow schools to offer healthier snack foods to children, while limiting junk food.
We’re always working to offer Sheboygan Area School District students healthier and tastier choices. The School Nutrition Program has a Registered Dietician in the Central Kitchen. Meredith will be building recipes and making great changes to the menu. School meals are a great value and a huge convenience for busy families too! We look forward to welcoming your children to the cafeteria this fall.
