Taneyville RII School
March 8, 2022
At Taneyville, we take many opportunities to ensure children are receiving balanced meals. For many of our student,s what they eat here at school is the only food they may receive that day. We serve 2 healthy/hot meals per day, along with an afternoon snack. Each meal is planned and consideration is taken when choosing what to serve.
We are a smaller district so we know the kids' favorites, and try to serve special yet healthy options. We send home menus so parents know what we are serving. We have good meal participation and students and adults both enjoy our school meals. The students also learn about healthy meal options in Health class. They are taught the Food Pyramid and about portion control. The CACFP allows us to continue to provide healthy meals to our students and we are thankful for all they do within the program.
