Welcome to Marshalltown's
Child Nutrition Program
The Child Nutrition Program offers nutritious breakfasts and lunches at every Marshalltown Community School District building. Proper nutrition is fundalmental for the success of academic programs.
Our meals meet the USDA Nutrition Standards, which requires the following:
- Age-appropriate calorie limits
- Larger servings of vegetables and fruits (students must take at least one serving)
- A wider variety of vegetables, including dark green and red/orange vegetables and legumes
- Fat-free or 1% milk (flavored milk must be fat-free)
- More whole grains
- Less sodium
The new requirements build on the work we have already been doing to provide more fruits, vegetables, whole grains and healthier main dishes in our cafeterias. Now is a great time for students to choose school lunch! Check out the “Meal Requirements” tab to learn more.
