The Food and Nutrition Department has eleven registered dietitians
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.
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
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.
