Providing Healthy Meals at Schools

The Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010 brought new regulations to the National School Lunch Program aimed at helping to decrease the incidence of Childhood Obesity in our country. As a result of these changes students will be offered meals that offer:

  • More fruits and vegetables
  • Meals with fewer calories, less fat and less sodium
  • Leaner proteins, with more meat-free alternatives
  • Right-sized portions of more satisfying foods
  • More whole-grain options

School Breakfast Program

Many schools in Jeffco participate in the School Breakfast Program, offering a nutritious breakfast every day that school is in session. Students eligible for free or reduced price lunch will receive breakfast at no charge. Read the following flyer to learn more about the program and participating schools:
