Welcome to Child Nutrition!

Watson Chapel School District Child Nutrition Department knows that good nutrition and learning go hand in hand!


  • The Child Nutrition Department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.

    Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.

  • Watson Chapel has implemented Offer Vs. Serve at LL Owen, Coleman and the Junior and Senior High.  

  • Students will be offered items from 3 food groups (grain, milk and fruit) at breakfast and 5 food groups (grains, meat, vegetable, fruit and milk) for lunch.

  • For breakfast, students must select 1/2 cup fruit or juice and at least 2 other items.

  • For lunch, students must select 1/2 cup fruit or vegetable and at least 2 other food groups.
