Welcome to the Nutrition Services component of Coordinated School Health. Nutrition services support the Coordinated School Health Program by introducing healthy eating patterns and concepts to students, reinforcing nutrition concepts introduced in the health education curriculum, and contributing to students' overall health and readiness to learn in the school community.
Nutrition services assure access to a variety of nutritious, affordable and appealing meals in school that accommodate the health and nutrition needs of all students. School nutrition programs reflect the U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans and other criteria to meet the complete nutrition needs of students.
Each school's nutrition program also offers a learning laboratory for classroom nutrition and health education that helps students develop skills and habits in selecting nutritionally appropriate foods, and serves as a resource and link with nutrition-related community services and educational programs. Qualified professionals such as experienced, knowledgeable school food supervisors and registered dietitians provide these services.
