The Selma City School System Child Nutrition Program is committed to taking advantage of the opportunity during our scholars' developmental years to promote and influence healthy food choices through school meals. If you have any questions concerning any aspect of the Child Nutrition Program, please contact the manager at your child school or contact the Child Nutrition Director at 334 874-1600 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
To accomplish these goals:
- Child Nutrition Programs comply with federal, state and local requirements. Child Nutrition Programs are accessible to all children.
- Nutrition education is provided and promoted.
- Patterns of meaningful physical activity connect to students' lives outside of physical education.
- All school-based activities are consistent with local wellness plan goals.
- All foods and beverages made available on campus (including vending concessions, à la carte, student stores, parties and fundraising) during the school day are consistent with the current Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
- All foods made available on campus adhere to food safety and security guidelines.
- The school environment is safe, comfortable, pleasing, and allows ample time and space for eating meals. Food is not used as a reward or punishment. Physical activity is not used as a punishment.
- Students may not be denied a meal, or any part withheld, as a form of punishment.
- The Wellness Committee, comprised of members from the board of education, administrator(s), parent(s), student(s), child nutrition staff, and school health staff will review its established plan of action in order to ensure compliance and make adjustments as necessary for the successful implementation of the plan.
- The School Health Index, tailored to accurately assess the Selma City Schools' Wellness Policy, shall be used to measure the implementation of the Wellness Plan at each school.
