Nutrition Services

 Welcome to Your Source for Nutrition Information
 

Mountainburg Public School meals provide a healthy and affordable way to make sure your child gets the nutrients that are essential for success in school. 

Studies have shown that kids who eat school meals get more calcium, protein, and vitamins, and less fat and sugar than their classmates who do not eat school meals.

 School meals are based on USDA guidelines that are consistent with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.  Thanks to the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act, school meals now include more whole grains, larger fruit servings, and a wider variety of vegetables including: legumes, red/orange (tomatoes/carrots), and dark green (broccoli, romaine). 

 Your child’s health, and well-being is our priority.
