Wellness

FNS Wellness
The Food and Nutrition Department has eleven registered dietitians on staff.  Like you, we want all children to have the nutrition they need to be fit, healthy, and ready for success.  We are very proud of the strides we have taken to improve our meals over the years.  Consistent with Choose My Plate messages, students can enjoy whole grains, low-fat dairy, and fresh fruits and vegetables every day.  In addition, all of our food offerings are trans fat free. 
 
District Wellness
Each school has a local wellness plan and school health advisory committee.  Schools engage in wellness activities for both students and staff.  During the 2012-2013 school year, the compliance for the Wellness Plan Action items was 100% for all schools.  To find out more about what is going on at your school, contact the local school wellness representative.

Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Program:
Six Cobb County Elementary Schools have been awarded the USDA Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Grant for 2013-14.  These elementary schools are Argyle, Belmont Hills,  Clay, Hollydale, Mableton, and Sanders.  The goal of this program is to expand the variety of fruits and vegetables children experience, increase consumption of fruits and vegetables and to make a positive impact on the students' future health.  Students are given snacks which include some of the less well know fruits and vegetables along with providing nutrition education.
