At COA we believe that nutritionally sound meals are the fuel that supports growth and brain development. Our menu is planned by registered dietitian Jaime Windrow, is nutritionally balanced exceeding federal guidelines (USDA) and provides wholesome meals that support healthy growth.
It is our goal to provide a variety of wholesome meals and snacks that are nutritious, safe, developmentally appropriate and properly portioned for young children. We view our approach to be another “teachable moment” that will help children to live a healthy lifestyle and prepare them for early child development and learning.
Our menu plan is aligned with the latest nutritional science for optimal nourishment. Our menus increase the availability of whole grains and fat free and low fat milk. Levels of sodium, saturated fat and trans fat are reduced to meet the nutritional needs of school children within their calorie requirements.
COA schools serve breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack. However, meals, menus and snack service may vary by location. Please check with your local school for more information.
Please alert your local school if your child has a known allergy or nutritional need. Special arrangements will be made on a case-by-case basis.
