Feeding elementary school kids is a tricky business especially when it comes to teaching students about nutrition, encouraging physical activity and serving healthy, delicious drinks and meals that even picky eaters won’t refuse. But thanks to the efforts of school administrators, lunch managers, and the District’s Nutrition Services Department, Canyons students have world-class food to eat in a “smarter lunchroom.”
The USDA recently awarded 14 of Canyons District’s elementary schools the Bronze Award in the Healthier US Schools Challenge. This designation means that each of these schools not only meets the requirements of the School Breakfast Program and the National School Lunch Program, but they also serve a variety of healthy foods that look good, taste good, and emphasize fruits, veggies and whole grains.
Congratulations to Canyons District Nutrition ServicesÂ and the following elementary schools for their achievements:
