Healthy Food Choices During the School Day

Moreland School District staff takes seriously our role in helping to curb child obesity and diabetes.  Our wonderful partnership with Sodexo provides healthy food choices for students each day through our breakfast and lunch programs.  You may not be aware of the fact that school districts are required and monitored by the California Department of Education to not serve any food to students, during the school day, that do not meet the state and federal guidelines as healthy.  This includes foods for birthday celebrations, classroom treats, and school fundraising events during school hours.  Parents can help by choosing non-food items when contributing to school events, or selecting healthy choices as an alternative.  In addition, all healthy foods contributed to the school must be store purchased according to the local Health Department.  Together, we can help to encourage healthy choices for students.  Thank you for your help.
