Healthy Eating at School

          Welcome to the Western School District’s web site, Healthy Eating at School.

          The Western School District's Nutrition Policy is all about promoting healthy foods and beverages for students in school and for young people participating in recreation, sport and community activities. To develop life long healthy habits, it is important for students to receive consistent messages around the importance of healthy eating and being active every day.

           Building from the great work of the School Food Guidelines we are working with food service providers, parents, coaches, and volunteers to increase healthy beverage choices in school facilities and events.

           Let’s all work together to make the healthy choice the easy choice for our youth!
