The mission of the Lafourche Parish Public Schools Child Nutrition Department is to provide learning experiences that will improve children's food habits with the ultimate goal of physically fit adults. Other goals are to serve nutritionally adequate, attractive, and moderately priced meals, to help children grow socially and emotionally; and to extend educational influences to the homes of school children. It is the basic belief that the Child Nutrition Program is an integral part of the school program. The program shall provide 1/3 of the child's nutritional needs for lunch and 1/4 of their nutritional needs for breakfast.
Team Nutrition Philosophy
All public schools in Lafourche Parish are Team Nutrition Schools. Team Nutrition Schools have these common values.
We believe that children should be empowered to make food and physical activity choices that reflect the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
We believe that good nutrition and physical activity are essential to children's health and educational success.
We believe that school meals that meet the Dietary Guidelines for Americans should taste good and appeal to children.
We believe our programs must build upon the best science, education, communication and technical resources available.
We believe that school, parent and community teamwork is essential to encouraging children to make food and physical activity choices for a healthy lifestyle.
We believe that messages to children should be age appropriate and delivered in language they speak, through media they use, in ways that are entertaining and actively involve them in learning.
We believe in focusing on positive messages regarding food and physical activity choices children can make.
We believe it is critical to stimulate and support education and action at the national, state and local levels to help children develop healthy eating and physical activity behaviors.
