St. Tammany Parish Public Schools Child Nutrition Programs offer healthy meal choices for our students. Our menus offer a variety of fresh fruit and vegetables, whole grains, healthy entrees, and milk. Our schools serve school-made bread, and we make most of our entrees from scratch. School lunch, breakfast, and snacks are consistent with the U.S. Dietary Guidelines.

Our Child Nutrition Programs engage sudents across all grade levels. Students assist us with taste-tasting new items. The ProStart classes participate in our Cook-Off where they create their own school lunch menu and promote to the students.

Get your child's day started with a healthy breakfast. In addition to the posted menu, all schools offer dry cereal, fruit, juice, and milk daily. Eating breakfast before starting the school day is linked to improved concentration, better test scores, increased energy, improved behavior, and a healthier body weight.

We are an equal opportunity provider and employer.
