Preparing healthy school meals, modeling healthy nutrition habits, and offering a friendly greeting are all in a day’s work for Centennial’s school nutrition employees. Breakfast is served in the elementary and middle schools and lunch is served in all of the Centennial Schools daily.
The secondary schools offer several lunch meal choices as well as ala carte.
For many children, school lunch is the most important and nutrient-rich meal of the day. School lunch supplies one-third of their recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for calories and key nutrients. Meals are kept to less than 30 percent of calories from fat and less than 10 percent of calories from saturated fat.
"What's up with school lunch?", explains the changes in school meals this year.
Due to the changes affiliated with the Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act legislation of 2010 we will no longer be able to offer a Smuckers Uncrustable or hoagie at the elementary schools every day of the week. Those sandwiches will be available Monday thru Thursday but on Friday, we will be offering an elementary salad option with a bread-stick.
