District Wellness Policy           

The Food and Nutrition Services had developed a Wellness Policy to promote the health and wellness of the Springfield City School District Students.  The Wellness Guidelines are reviewed annually and updated to meet the current regulations. Policy and Guidelines attached below. 

  • All items on the regular lunch menu, including French fries, are baked not fried. 

  • Healthy snack and beverage machines are located in the high school cafeterias. 

  • Fresh salads are available for students each day as an alternate to the regular plate lunch.  

  • Total fat content must be less than 30% of calories, with less than 10% of the calories from saturated fat.  

  • We encourage our students and staff to eat a variety of grains, fruits and vegetables daily. 

Healthy eating helps children to grow, develop and do well in school.  Healthy eating helps to prevent childhood and adolescent health problems such as obesity and diabetes, it also lowers the risk of future health problems such as heart disease, strokes and cancer.  Healthy Eating habits begin at home..
