Nutrition and Wellness

Fullerton School District Wellness Policy

In 2016, Fullerton School District Board of Trustees adopted the current policy regarding student wellness. This policy is the result of the combined efforts of the District's Educational Services Department and Nutrition Services Department. This policy incorporates nutrition education, physical education, and implementation of strict requirements for food and beverages offered by the District's Nutrition Services Department to our students. The District must also comply with State and Federal requirements because it participates in the National School Lunch & Breakfast Programs.

Nutrition Services develops monthly meal menus based on this Board policy and makes healthier foods available to our students. Whole grain breads, low-fat foods, reduced-fat foods, and reduced-sugar cereals are among the items offered to our students. These are essential building blocks in the USDA food pyramid. Parents are encouraged to offer healthy foods in their homes.
