• Child Nutrition
     
    Solana Beach School District Child Nutrition Program is dedicated to serving children healthy and nutritious meals. We are committed to ensuring that food choices of high nutritious value and strong customer acceptability are available to students every school day. Please see our School Nutrition Meal Pattern Validation Review Report.
      

    Solana Beach School District participates in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). This program is designed to promote the health and well-being of children by providing nutritious meals. We continually strive to make improvements in our menu choices by increasing the variety of whole grain foods and choices of different fruits and vegetables offered daily in our salad bars.

    We support learning by providing healthy habits for lifelong nutrition. The Child Nutrition department is committed to improving the health and academic success of our students by providing the best nutrition program possible.
