The Governing Board recognizes that students need adequate, nourishing food in order to grow, learn and maintain good health. To reinforce the district's nutrition education program, foods available on school premises shall be:

1. Carefully selected so as to contribute to students' nutritional well-being and the prevention of disease

2. Prepared in ways which will appeal to students, retain nutritive quality and foster healthful eating habits

3. Served in age-appropriate quantities and at reasonable prices

The Superintendent or designee shall ensure that the meals offered by the district's food service program meet the nutritional standards and dietary guidelines required for participation in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs.

The Superintendent or designee shall establish opportunities whereby students and parents/guardians may participate in the selection of foods of good nutritional quality for school menus. Parents/guardians are encouraged to also consider nutritional quality and support the district's nutrition education efforts when selecting any snacks which they may donate for occasional class parties.

To the extent permitted under the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs, students in all grades shall be allowed to decline parts of their meal which they do not intend to consume.
