Feeding today's youth has never been more challenging. The Clayton County Public Schools Nutrition Department has met the challenge by offering a wide assortment of food choices that meet the U.S.D.A. Dietary Guidelines for Healthy Americans. As a district, we feed lunch to over 84% of our students ( 42,000+ ) and over 39% of our students ( 19,700+ ) eat breakfast at school. This is one of the highest averages in the state. Breakfast, long recognized as the most important meal of the day, is now offered in all of our schools.
