Students enjoying school lunch

Nutrition Services

School meals offer students:

  • Age-appropriate calorie limits and portion sizes.
  • Daily servings of fresh fruits and vegetables. Please note: all students must take at least one 1/2 cup serving of fruit/vegetables with his/her lunch meal and at least 1/2 cup juice or fruit with his/her breakfast meal.
  • White or flavored fat-free milk or 1% white milk.
  • Whole grain breads, pastas and grains.
  • Lean proteins from meat and non-meat sources.
  • Foods with reduced sodium and limited amounts of saturated fats.

Stillwater Nutrition Services purchases foods that have been specifically formulated for schools, which means the items are lower in calories, sodium, fat and sugar versus what can be found in the retail market.
