Welcome Back to School Lunch!

We are very excited about the improvements we saw in our school's lunch last year including more fresh fruits and vegetables, more foods made from scratch, a lot less HFCS, better hot lunch alternatives and of course the salad bars!

Thanks to our food service dept and  the recently reauthorized Child Nutrition Act, we can look forward to even more changes this year. First up -- free drinking water is now available in our cafeterias.

Sea Cliff's nutrition committee will also be working on several ideas:
- raising funds for and providing more fun,, interactive opportunities for nutrition education
- Looking at the need for breakfast in our school
- Encouraging students to try and eat more fruit and vegetables sides with their lunch
- Promoting backyard gardens and fresh, local vegetables with small "farmer's market" tables

Join us! Our committee will have a sign up sheet at Back to School Night.
