Dear Cohasset Families,
Cohasset school cafeterias meet all federal nutrition standards for school meals, ensuring that meals are healthy and well-balanced and provide students all the nutrition they need to succeed at school. Now is a great time to encourage your kids to choose school lunch!
School meals have always offered students milk, fruits and vegetables, and proteins and grains, and they must meet strict limits on saturated fat and portion size. School lunches meet standards requiring:
- Age-appropriate calorie limits
- Larger servings of vegetables and fruits (students must take at least one serving of produce)
- 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
We’re always working to offer Cohasset students healthier and tastier choices, and we are proud of the selection we offer. School meals are a great value and a huge convenience for busy families, too. We use the Nutrikids online system at all schools. Nutrikids allows you to prepay for students’ meals and monitor what your children eat each day. Visit www.myschoolbucks.com for more information.
We look forward to welcoming your children to the cafeteria!
