Good nutrition is essential for sound academic performance and impacts the health and success of our students. It is our commitment to increase nutrition awareness and to encourage students to choose healthy meals. By offering well-balanced and appealing food choices, we help students stay fueled and focused for a productive day.
We believe that it is critical to start children on the right path at an early age - to make every effort to help them understand the importance of eating properly and staying healthy. To this end, we offer IMPACT Jr.TM, a comprehensive nutrition awareness program, developed by registered dietitians, targeted at our elementary students.
Nutrition awareness does not stop there. Older students need reminders on how to maintain a healthy diet and an easy way to make the right meal choices. So, we use TYRTM (text messaging lingo which stands for “Treat Yourself Right”) to provide students with quick, relevant healthy lifestyle tips on the serving line and at health fairs. Our tweens and teens nutrition awareness campaign, FUELTM, uses a website, promotions with cool prizes, and specially packaged meal deals to make eating healthy fun. Please select your school from the drop-down menu above to find out more about the nutrition awareness programs and special events happening there.
