Food Service News
WELCOME TO THE 2016-17 SCHOOL YEAR!
Our Food Service Department continues to be committed to providing healthy school meals to our Cadott students. Our team of dedicated food and nutrition professionals supports student academic success and promotes healthful eating habits that lead to lifelong positive nutrition practices. The scope of our responsibilities has broadened over the years. Now, in addition to running a business of feeding over 700 students a day, we work on the front line of three public service campaigns: Helping children to develop healthier eating habits: reducing the rate of childhood obesity and encouraging children to increase physical activity. Regulatory changes affecting school food service continue to change. Food and drinks at breakfast and lunch must meet nutrient requirements. These strict guidelines are what we use to plan menus that meet calorie, sodium, fat, whole grain, fruit and vegetable rules.
The food service works with doctor prescribed menus every day. If your child has something we should know about, please send it in. The staff is always looking for input and new ideas from others. The food service welcomes menu items and appreciates the help. Feel free to call Lori at 289-3795 ext.1143 or e-mail her with ideas.
Free and reduced price meal applications are available in all school offices. This application actually serves two purposes.
- It helps the food service to determine if your family qualifies for full price, reduced price, or free breakfast and lunch.
- The application is also used to determine how much state funding our school receives for SAGE (Class Size Reduction) and Title I for example. It is important that all families complete and return these applications to school.
Children, just like adults, base their food choices on what is available. They may make unhealthy choices if vending machines are the only option. Although some schools may have a good breakfast vending options, these foods are often high in sugar and fat. Convenience stores and fast food locations are similar in providing high calorie choices. School breakfast is a value for parents and students alike. Students receive 1/4 of their daily nutrients are a very low cost for parents. What a value!
School breakfast offers an opportunity for students to eat with their siblings and classmates. This time of socializing allows children to learn from one another by talking and conversing. Students are usually eager to arrive at school to meet with their friends. Breakfast is a time for them to do so without interruption in the classroom.
