Child Nutrition dedicates its resources to establishing a positive perception of school nutrition that encourages all students to consume healthful school meals having a positive impact on the education of students.
- Our goal: Promote life-long healthy habits and support student achievement by providing the most nutritious, appealing meals, prepared under safe and sanitary conditions.
- Who: The Birdville Nutrition team is a dedicated group of experienced professionals who care about your student’s health, well-being and ability to learn. It is a proven fact that hungry minds cannot learn. Each and every one of our students is important to us and we take our responsibility to provide a nutritious and sound meal service to our kids to heart.
- How: School meals are planned by registered dietitians to reflect the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans and the 2010 Healthy Hungry Kid’s Act. We’re always working to offer healthier and tastier choices; school meals are great value and a huge convenience for busy families. Less sodium, more whole grains, fat free or 1% milk are a few of our recent changes.
- Why: The USDA indicates that children who participate in school lunch have superior nutritional intakes compared to those who do not participate. Studies show that proper nutrition improves a child's behavior, school performance and overall cognitive development. A healthy eating environment teaches children good nutrition and the elements of a proper diet, which can have positive effects on children's eating habits and physical well throughout life.
