Nutrition is a new science, and it is constantly evolving. As student nutrition professionals, it is our responsibility to research all science based nutrition recommendations for children and young adults. We exercise the guidelines set forth by the United States Department of Agriculture, the Texas Public School Nutrition Policy and the Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2010. We also keep our menus closely connected to the Institute of Medicine and Alliance for Healthier Generations.
The focus of the Abilene ISD Student Nutrition Department is to support the educational process by providing nutritious meals to the students of AISD. Numerous studies have shown that children who eat well balanced meals, supported by daily physical activity and sufficient rest are healthier. Properly nourished students will also achieve more academically, with greater school attendance and will have fewer behavioral and disciplinary concerns.
Good nutrition starts with healthy, well-balanced meals, but our commitment does not end with our menus. Our focus is to provide nutrition education to our students so that they will have an opportunity to make healthy food decisions for a lifetime. Our menus are progressive with our kid’s in mind while staying committed to introducing new and exciting foods and experiences to increase our student’s exposure to the wonderful world of food, nutrition and a healthy lifestyle.
Service to our customers and community is another focus point for the Student Nutrition Department. Our philosophy and belief is very simple. When you consider what companies that you would like to do business with, one of the areas of consideration is service and consistency. Customers will most frequently visit those business' that offer a quality product, dependability and consistent customer service. Once you have found that level of confidence, loyalty to those business’ usually follows.
We are truly a collection of 26 restaurants serving more customers each year than any other restaurant in Abilene. Every customer is important and we look forward to the opportunity to be of service and to earn your confidence and your business.
The Student Nutrition Department sincerely thanks you for the opportunity to proudly serve the students, adult staff and community of Abilene ISD.
