    Department Overview

    Hendrick Hudson School District believes that one of the most important ways in which we can help our children perform better in their classrooms is to provide them with the nutrition necessary for the healthy growth of their minds and bodies. Therefore, we provide breakfast and/or lunch in our schools every day.

    Dietary Guidelines:

    Hendrick Hudson School District proudly participates in the National School Lunch Program in all of our Elementary Schools and Blue Mountain Middle School. The USDA ( Department of Agriculture) has established new dietary guidelines that moderate calories while increasing whole grains, fruits and vegetables.

    Breakfast includes:

    2 Servings of whole grains (sereal, bagels, breakfast bars, cereal bars)

    1 cup fresh canned or frozen fruit

    8 Fluid ounces of milk ( 1% or fat free)

    Students must select a minimum of three items and one MUST be a fruit or vegetable serving to be charged the meal price.

    Lunch Includes:

    2 oz. of meat/meat/alternative

    1 cup of fruit serving
