How we accomplish our goals
Partners for School Wellness
In 2016, Fullerton School District Board of Trustees adopted the current policy regarding student wellness. This policy is the result of the combined efforts of the District's Educational Services Department and Nutrition Services Department. This policy incorporates nutrition education, physical education, and implementation of strict requirements for food and beverages offered by the District's Nutrition Services Department to our students. The District must also comply with State and Federal requirements because it participates in the National School Lunch & Breakfast Programs.
Nutrition Services develops monthly meal menus based on this Board policy and makes healthier foods available to our students. Whole grain breads, low-fat foods, reduced-fat foods, and reduced-sugar cereals are among the items offered to our students. These are essential building blocks in the USDA food pyramid. Parents are encouraged to offer healthy foods in their homes.
Sharing the Message of Wellness
One of our goals is to share the message of nutrition and wellness via our department's Web site that emphasizes the importance of nutrition AND fitness. Our site provides information on the nutrition and fitness for teachers, parents, and students, as well as, a variety of learning tools.
