Barrow County School Nutrition Department is working hard to make sure our students are the best they can possibly be. The managers at BCS are
all Serv-Safe Certified and are required to have 12 hours certification training each year, as well as, a 30 hour training class every three years. Managers are trained on
Dietary guidelines, food safety, food production, employee management, and customer service. Barrow County Managers are a cut above the rest.
Dietary Guidelines for
Americans are designed to provide students with all the nutrition they need to succeed in school. At lunch, students can choose from fruits, vegetables, milk, whole
grains and lean proteins. If students take all these foods and fill up on the larger servings of fiber-rich fruits and vegetables, they shouldn't be hungry throughout
the day. Barrow County School nutrition department wants our students to eat as many of the fruits and vegetable offerings they choose. We offer a variety each day, as
well as, at least three entrée options each day.
School lunch was never meant to provide students with 100% of their food or calories. Students should be eating a
healthy breakfast which is offer every morning to our students in the cafeteria or in some schools even in the classroom. Students should also have a healthy dinner which also
includes fruits, vegetables, milk, whole grains and lean proteins.
