Child Nutrition Services
The Lebanon Special School District’s Child Nutrition Program supports the district’s mission of “Committed to a Community of Excellence” by providing healthy, nutritious meals for students, staff/faculty and visitors. Research supports that students eating nutritionally balanced meals perform better in school.

Breakfast and Lunch Meal Services
The Child Nutrition department implements Offer vs. Serve concepts during breakfast and lunch meal services. Although students have an option of which item(s) to decline, a complete meal is encouraged. The breakfast and lunch meal must include the selection of one fruit or vegetable to be a complete meal.
Students will be offered foods daily from all three breakfast components –
(1) fruit/juice/vegetable, (2) grains -100% whole grain rich, and (3) milk. According to new USDA regulations, students will be required to take at least ½ cup of fruit, juice, or vegetable and at least 2 other items at breakfast to be counted as a “meal”.
The LSSD is now participating in Universal Breakfast, which means every student is eligible to receive breakfast in the classroom each day at no charge.
LSSD lunch menus offer five food components (meat/meat alternate, milk, grain/breads, two servings of vegetables/fruits). Students can decline two of the five components, but must select at least ½ cup of either a fruit (fruit combo) or vegetable (vegetable combo) or ½ cup fruit/vegetable combo.
