The Carroll County School Nutrition Program is dedicated to serving quality nutritious meals to its students and staff. Elementary students may choose from either two hot entrees w/sides or an entree and a salad choice. On Fridays, a sack lunch line in lieu of the salad is offered to students. The sack lunch menu choices vary between the student favorite of peanut butter/jelly sandwich or a turkey/ham/cheese sandwich. Middle school students may select from a hot-cooked meal, fruit/yogurt plate, peanut butter/jelly sandwich bag lunch or pizza offered three times a week. In high school students have six entrees: Mama’s Kitchen (home cooked foods), Grilleworks (sandwiches), Pizzeria, peanut butter/jelly sandwich bag lunch, fruit/yogurt plate or a salad plate. Since introducing these new options, lunch participation has increased.
Breakfast is offered daily at all county schools. Popular items such as biscuits, bagels, donuts, cereal, eggs and grits, and pancakes are some of the featured items. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it re-fuels the brain for learning. Research shows that students do better academically with a good, nutritious breakfast. School breakfast fills this need for busy parents by providing healthy foods students will eat.
