The Newton County School Nutrition Department is pleased to announce a new mobile menu app that offers an easy way to view menus right from your smart phone.  The new “Web Menus” mobile app includes:

  • Daily menus
  • Link to Online Payment Provider
  • Link to Nutrition Services Website
  • Info section “All About School Lunch"

“This is just one more step we are making in an effort to continually improve the quality of the menus we offer our students and also raise the bar on the standards of our school meals,” said Jan Loomans, NCSS Director of Operations. “Our focus is on enhancing the diet of students with more nutritious choices here at school and by providing nutrition education that will help students form healthy habits that last a lifetime.”

Key nutritional improvements that have been made include offering a variety of more fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fat-free and low-fat fluid milk with meals. NCSS has also reduced the levels of sodium and saturated fat and has eliminated added trans-fat.

“We do not supersize our meals, but instead strive to meet the nutrition needs of students within their age specific calorie requirements,” added Loomans.

The ‘Web Menu’ App is free and available in the App Stores.  Look for the app “Web Menus by School Nutrition and Fitness,” which can be downloaded to any smart phone.
