Child Nutrition

Andalusia City Schools Child Nutrition Program (CNP) strives to provide students with the best possible nutrients each day for breakfast and lunch under the federal guidelines. Schools all across America have been improving school meals and have worked to educate students with regard to making healthy choices at school and at home. All food at ACS is either baked or steamed and never fried. We are fortunate to be able to serve FREE universal breakfast to all our students Pre-K through 12th grade AND our students at Andalusia Elementary are encouraged to try new fruits and vegetables as we have our Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Grant available throughout the year.

The Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010 requires the USDA to develop nutrition standards for "competitive foods" or items sold in vending machines, snack bars, and a la carte items in competition to the reimbursable school meal as well as update the current meal pattern for all school meals. In addition, USDA guidelines also require that all schools serve more fruits and vegetables with students taking at least 1/2 cup serving of a fruit/vegetable per reimbursable meal. School menus must provide specific age-appropriate portion sizes, calorie requirements, food components, and a minimum number of servings of dark green vegetables, orange vegetables, and legumes per week. A complete breakfast or lunch is required to meet the Free/Reduced Meal Program reimbursements.

Please check out the menu on your smart phone using our MealViewer app.
