Identifying Healthy Choices

Logo The Nutrition Services Department is proud to bring education to the cafeteria. Our Point of Sale (POS) program is designed to provide a quick way to evaluate Menu Choices.

Each day, the menu sign includes the icons that apply to the main item being offered. This allows students to learn about the healthy choices they are selecting. Each of the Healthy Choice icons are displayed below. Click on an icon to learn more about the benefits. Also, visit our resources page for more information on nutrition – appropriate for all ages.
