School cafeteria lunches aren’t what they used to be, especially at Barren County Schools.  Along with tasting good, school lunches offer both fruits and vegetables every day of the week, they also have a reduced amount of saturated fat, trans fat and sodium.  The overall health and wellness of the students is the top priority.  As part of the Nutrition Services Program, schools are given an annual wellness and nutrition report card.  CheyAnne Fant, Barren County Director of Nutrition Services, will be sharing these results this afternoon:

The forum will include presentation of the Barren County Schools report card, district wellness report cards and information on the school’s upcoming cycle menu.  There will also be a taste testing of a variety of foods served in the school cafeterias.  You may be surprised by how much school lunches have changed.

 

 

The Nutrition Services Forum will begin at 4:30 this afternoon at the Barren County Board of Education on West Washington Street.  Immediately following the forum, the Barren County Board will hold their regular January meeting which will begin at 5:30.  Included on the agenda is approval to amend the school calendar for this year, approve draft budget for 2014-2015 and the approval of a second reading to revise two Board Policies.
