Food Menus

Students who are well-nourished are shown to have increased problem-solving abilities, memory, verbal fluency and creativity. In recent years, nutritional standards for school meals have changed as a result of the federal Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, which regulates school meals to ensure they are low in fat and provide the recommended dietary allowances for calories, protein, vitamins A and C, iron and calcium.
