Healthy School Meals for Minnesota Kids

Schools are at the front lines of childhood health
In school, children learn much more than math and English, they learn about what food is valued and what food is not, but they learn this less through lesson plans and more through role-modeling every day at breakfast, snack, in classroom celebrations and at lunch.

I am very pleased that the school district is addressing student wellness issues. ... I believe it is the school’s responsibility to foster a premium positive health environment through education, outreach and role modeling. -- a Dakota County Schools parent
