AFTER SCHOOL SNACKS 


Is your junior-senior high student hungry at the end of the day – with sports and activities still to come before dinner at home? Boxed snacks are available every day after school.  For $3.50, your child can get a sandwich (3 choices), pretzels, fruit, and cold drink.  Please see the cashier at breakfast or lunch to place an order.

DIETARY GUIDELINES


The Dietary Guidelines for Americans are jointly issued and updated every 5 years by the Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). They provide authoritative advice for Americans ages 2 and older about consuming fewer calories, making informed food choices, and being physically active to attain and maintain a healthy weight, reduce risk of chronic disease, and promote overall health. 


What is a "Healthy Diet"?  The Dietary Guidelines for Americans describe a healthy diet as one that:

  • Emphasizes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fat-free or low-fat milk and milk products;
  • Includes lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs, and nuts; and
  • Is low in saturated fats, trans fats, cholesterol, salt (sodium), and added sugars. 


The recommendations in the Dietary Guidelines and in MyPlate are for the general public over 2 years of age. MyPlate is not a therapeutic diet for any specific health condition. Individuals with a chronic health condition should consult with a health care provider to determine what dietary pattern is appropriate for them.


MyPlate helps individuals use the Dietary Guidelines to: 

  • Make smart choices from every food group.
  • Find balance between food and physical activity.
  • Get the most nutrition out of calories.
  • Stay within daily calorie needs.
