Child Nutrition

Welcome to Child Nutrition

Director:  Joe Russo

 

The Huffman ISD Child Nutrition Department prides itself on serving nutritious and good tasting breakfasts and lunches for our students throughout the school year.  Menus are published in elementary school newsletters and posted in school cafeterias.  Menus are also posted on the District website at www.huffmanisd.net, under the Child Nutrition Department.

 

Because of Harvey related impacts to the District, Huffman ISD has again become eligible to participate in the USDA’s Community Eligibility Provision (CEP). Under CEP all students may receive breakfast and lunch at no cost.

 

Under CEP, Free and Reduced meal applications will no longer be required.

 

Ala carte items (snacks, seconds, beverages, etc.) will still be available for purchase.

 

Parents may place money on Student Accounts for the ala carte purchases.  The “My School Bucks” pre-payment program provides an easy way to replenish accounts (small fee), view student spending (free), and to set balance alerts (free).

 

Adults will still be required to pay for their meals.

 

Today’s school breakfast and lunch are both designed to meet stringent national nutrition standards. These nutritional guidelines require that school meals provide specific amounts of calories, protein, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, iron and calcium. In addition, meals are now lower in sodium and cholesterol and higher in fiber than in the past. Total fat calories are to average 30% or less over a period of a week. Child Nutrition professionals plan the menus to meet these standards.
