September is Better Breakfast Month 🌞. Let’s test your knowledge and see how much you know about the importance of breakfast 🤔…
1. TRUE, Breakfast has been coined “the most important meal of the day.” Eating breakfast replenishes our body with important nutrients that fuel us during our busy day. These nutrients are also important for our brain health 🧠, and help us understand and retain all the information we learn in and out of the classroom. While breakfast may not alway guarantee that A+ grade, studies have shown increased test scores in students who consume breakfast consistently as oppose non-breakfast eaters. 📝

2. C; As mentioned above, breakfast helps boost our brain power ⚡️. Studies have shown improvements in both memory and attention during the school day in consistent breakfast eaters. 

3. B; while all these foods are part of a nutritious breakfast, whole-grains 🌾provides the body with fiber, B vitamins, and iron. Fiber helps maintain a healthy gut and control blood sugar & cholesterol levels. B vitamins have a lot of important functions including improving energy & memory, and stimulating the immune system. Iron is a component of red blood cells, which helps deliver oxygen throughout the body.

4. TRUE; Each food group provides a variety of essential nutrients for growth and development. Eating a combination of food groups also provides you with enough energy to get through the day.

Today students at Rock Ridge HS helped the nutrition services team test some new menu items! Our goal is to introduce more culturally diverse menu items at LCPS so all students feel represented in the cafeteria. While food provides our bodies with fuel to get through the day, it also brings people together. We know how important it is to feature a variety of cuisines during our breakfast & lunch services. Thanks to all the students who provided feedback and helped us on this mission! #lcpsnutrition #lcps #schoolnutrition #tastetesting

Let’s talk about macronutrients! 😁

Protein, carbohydrates, and fats are types of macronutrients. The term “macro” means the body needs these nutrients in larger amounts.

✨Protein is important and has many functions including building and repairing muscles, creating antibodies which help fight infections, and helping digest food. Meat, fish, eggs, beans, and nuts are some great sources of protein.
✨Carbohydrates are the body’s main energy source and help you stay alert and keep active during the day. Oatmeal, cereal, whole-grain breads, and bananas are great sources of carbohydrates.
✨Fats help absorb vitamins and are the building blocks of hormones. Oils, avocados, nuts and some fish are great sources of fats.
The nutrition team at LCPS work hard to make sure school meals provide you with a great source of all these essential macronutrients. If you have any more nutrition related questions, comment below!

Please give us our nacho grande Thursday's back!!!
Heartfelt thank you to all working at Loudoun County School Nutrition Services. Your steadfast dedication to the community is amazing.
I am incredibly proud of my former managers, their staffs, admins and SNS office for consistently trying innovative ideas that provide great meals at school that help students be ready to learn. Wings out and soaring!
Will lunch be served on site this year at Lincoln Elementary? The parents would like to see equitable food choices for their children and for their kids to eat warm food with sauces off real plates, not in a dry, tasteless form from plastic containers. We still have not seen any real data that this situation actually saves a dime (despite this being requested by several parents and the PTO). As the only school in Loudoun County to have food shipped in for elementary kids we consider this a very unfair treatment.

This is my favorite fb page for school lunch! You do an incredible job and your pictures are also so beautiful. Bravo!!
The decision to truck food to Lincoln Elementary is the most ridiculous move I have ever seen any school system make.
I would like to know who made the decision to deprive only one elementary school in Loudoun county of on site, freshly prepared and cooked meals (Lincoln Elementary, Purcellville)? I would also like to see the actual data on how much money is really saved by this action. Our school has now has a brand new $4500 oven that is NOT being used, meanwhile we have kids forgetting to order lunch who then have no food for the day, with no back up supplies on site. This seems like a totally well thought out and rational decision. I’m sure no one who was part of this decision-making process would want their child to be treated this way. The pared down food options are a disgrace, are far, far from balanced and repeat on a loop weekly. Shame on you! Parents are waiting to see data to support your actions! This is a matter of child welfare, equity and safety. Way to go for showing our kids a variety of healthy eating options! Kids should be able to see the food that they wish to purchase , not check it off a menu like a hospital stay!
