Nutrition Education


Part of the mission of LCPS School Nutrition Services is to empower students to develop life-long behaviors in selecting nutritious foods. In order to do so, students, along with the community they are surrounded by, need to be well informed on the topics of nutrition and overall wellness.

Our nutrition specialists and dietetic interns have created nutrition education lesson plan/resources that you can utilize in your classroom or at home.
