The Iowa Department of Education’s Bureau of Nutrition, Health and Transportation Services received a Wellmark Foundation grant titled Building on the Healthy Kids Act Opportunity. This grant will allow the Department of Education to support schools with the implementation of the Healthy Kids Act nutrition content standards at the local level, guide schools in re-examining their school district wellness policy, and engage parents and the greater school community in recognizing the impact they have as role models. Trainings, resources, etc. will be forthcoming and announced state-wide.
We do have available on-site at each school building nutritional information for each meal served to students. If you would like a personal copy of this nutritional information, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request your copy.
