EAT BREAKFAST AT SCHOOL
Mornings can be really crazy – the alarm doesn’t go off – the kids don’t want to get up – there’s no time to eat breakfast before the bus comes – or they’re just not ready to eat. Or maybe your teenager grabs a can of soda and a candy bar on the way to school. If this sounds like your house, we have good news for you.
Breakfast is served at school! School breakfast will give your child a healthy start to the day. A nutritious breakfast helps students be more alert so they can learn more in class. Breakfast has vitamins and nutrients for a strong and healthy body.
Breakfast at school is affordable, too. If you qualify for free and reduced priced meals, you also qualify for the breakfast program, with no additional paperwork. You can’t find a healthy breakfast at such a low cost anywhere else.
Help your child start the day right with school breakfast!!
HEALTHY CHANGES IN OUR SCHOOL CAFETERIAS
Dear LaPorte Community School Corporation Families:
This fall, LaPorte Community school cafeterias are meeting tough new federal nutrition standards for school meals, ensuring that meals are healthy and well-balanced and provide students all the nutrition they need to succeed at school. Now is a great time to encourage your kids to choose school lunch!!
School meals offer students milk, fruits and vegetables, proteins and grains, and they must meet strict limits on saturated fat and portion size. Starting in School Year 2014-2015, school lunches will meet additional standards requiring:
- Age-appropriate calorie limit
- Larger servings of vegetables and fruits (students must take at least one serving of produce)
- A wider variety of vegetables, including dark green and red/orange vegetables and legumes
- Fat free or 1% milk (flavored milk must be fat free
- More whole grains
- Less sodium
We’re always working to offer LaPorte Community school students healthier and tastier choices. School meals are a great value and a huge convenience for busy families too! Payments for school meals may be made in three ways – check, cash or online deposits. The online system will allow you to make secure online payments into your child’s breakfast/lunch account, view all of your child’s purchase history and account balances.
