      1. Nutrition Promotion Goals
        1. Students will receive consistent nutrition messages throughout the school, classroom, cafeteria, home, community and media. Schools will consider the use of USDA’s Team Nutrition posters/resources to display such messages.
        2. The District will use Smarter Lunchroom’s strategies to encourage healthy food consumption and reduce food waste. (www.smarterlunchrooms.org/).
        3. The District will consider the use of taste tests for nutritional items.
        4. Schools will promote farm to school activities and will consider inviting local farmers to talk about the produce they grow, or plan field trips to farms.
        5. The District Food Service Department will promote limiting the use of processed foods and increase the use of basic fresh foods that emphasize fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and dairy foods which are low in fat, added sugars and sodium (Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010).
        6. Schools will allow adequate time for breakfast and lunch. (Target: 15 minutes for lunch once seated) and assure adequate facilities for each student to eat sitting down in the cafeteria.
