September through April, we have Nutrition Day at each School Food Service cafeteria. Nutrition Day is available to all children, whether they purchase lunch or bring from home. Each Nutrition Day will feature one fruit or vegetable offered in a sample size at the Nutrition Day table. Activity sheets are also available for added fun!
The purpose for Nutrition Day is to increase the exposure of fruits and vegetables for all students, in which they may or may not have tried before. Studies show that increased exposure to fruits and vegetables is directly related to increased consumption of fruits and vegetables.
We try our best to choose seasonal fruit so we are able to buy locally.
If it’s OK with your Principal, be sure to volunteer at your child’s next Nutrition Day!
