Nutrition Education

The School Nutrition Program is a part of the education system in the Gilmer County School System.  We teach nutrition through example by serving meals that adhere to the dietary guidelines and the food guide pyramid.  In addition, we serve as a resource for classroom  teachers.  Our managers speak to classrooms upon request from a teacher, we use posters and bulletin boards to reinforce good nutrition, and we talk to students about what's good for them. We are committed to enhancing nutrition education for students so that they will become lifelong consumers of healthier foods.
