Child Nutrition

Davie County Schools operates under the National Breakfast and Lunch Program. USDA has updated the school meal patterns, the first major overhaul in years.  School meals emphasis is on fresh fruits,vegetables and whole grains.  Sodium levels will be reduced in stages over the next 10 years. Calorie ranges have been established based on grade groupings for breakfast and lunch. A copy of the new requirements are listed below.

All reimbursable school lunches selected by students must include a fruit or a vegetable.  Students can have unlimited fruits and vegetables choices on their first trip through the serving line at no cost. To encourage variety, students can only choose one serving of a potato product.  To help students "Build a Healthy School Lunch", we have menu boards displayed at all cafeterias that breaks the menu items down into the fruits, vegetables, proteins and grains.
