If you’re a parent, you know how hard it can be to get a healthy meal together for your kids. Imagine having to do that for 70,000 kids twice a day, every day.
That’s what I do as child nutrition services director at Aldine ISD. It’s tough to meet regulations, work with class schedules and do it all within budget. But it’s also rewarding to see the difference it makes. For instance, the difference breakfast makes to our students is huge.

The great news is that school breakfast takes the pressure off of you. We make sure menus follow nutrition guidelines based on research, so you know your children are getting the nutrients they need. And because school breakfast happens later in the day than home breakfast does, you know your kids are getting those nutrients at the right time: when their little brains and bodies are about to use them.
