Coordinated School Health
CSH Nutrition Services

pearsNutrition 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.

Close ties with family and community are an important component as schools work together to support a lifestyle conducive to good work habits and good health. If you are interested in helping with this initiative or with special health events in your school or district, please contact the Coordinated School Health office.

The FSSD Child Nutrition Department works with schools across the district to prepare menus that meet and/or exceed the daily nutritional requirements for healthy eating at a nominal price.For related links, please visit the Department of Education Coordinated School Health online.
