Northeastern School District recognizes that proper nutrition is essential for the social, emotional, physical and educational needs of our students.  The Child Nutrition Services Department provides student meals that are well-balanced in accordance with the National School Lunch and National School Breakfast Programs.  We provide students with quality food and nutrition offering a variety of fresh fruit and vegetables, whole grain products, trans-fat free entrees, and vegetarian options daily.  The menus at Northeastern are based on the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and the Food Guide Pyramid.
