Sloan-Hendrix School District Celebrates Healthy School Lunches and Lifestyles

Created by President John F. Kennedy in 1962, National School Lunch Week (NSLW) is a weeklong celebration of the school lunch program.  Its aim is to get students excited about healthy foods and physical exercise.  It is officially scheduled for the week of October 13-17, 2014, by an act of Congress.  To recognize the National School Lunch Program and the 30 million children that it serves every day, Sloan-Hendrix will recognize NSLW during this time and will feature events and activities that promote the importance of balancing healthy eating with physical activity and exercise.
“School lunches are healthier than ever, with more fruits and vegetables, more whole grains, and less fat and sodium,” said Deborah Lillard, Child Nutrition Director.  “NSLW is the perfect time to celebrate all the healthy options we’re serving every day in schools.”
The federally-funded National School Lunch Program has been serving the nation’s children for over 60 years and requires school meals to meet federal nutrition standards such as offering fruits and vegetables every day, serving whole-grain rich foods, and limiting fat, calories, and sodium.
