Participating schools from the Washoe County School District have joined in on this important initiative to help kids recognize and make healthier choices at school.

Healthy cafeteria initiatives modify the food environment during school lunch periods, prominently displaying, marketing, and increasing the convenience of healthy foods and providing many healthy options, especially fresh, whole foods and foods cooked from scratch. Healthy cafeteria initiatives can focus on food served through the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) as well as competitive or à la carte offerings.
