Student Nutrition

The Nicolet Union High School District provides a variety of healthy and appetizing meal options daily in partnership with its food service management company, Aramark. Our shared goal is to provide students with a well-balanced meal that also appeals to their tastes, while meeting the guidelines of the USDA's National School Lunch Program.  Designed to ensure students receive an appealing, balanced meal consisting of foods from all major food groups, the USDA’s standards focus on obtaining calories and other key nutrients from fruits, vegetables, lean protein foods, grains, and milk with proper serving sizes for a student’s age and activity level. 
For more details, please utilizing this link.

Some Of The Highlights Of Our Student Nutrition Program Include:

  • No more than 30 percent of calories can come from fat and less than 10 percent from saturated fat.

  • Meals must provide one-third of Recommended Dietary Allowances of protein, vitamins A and C, iron, and calcium. School meals are served in age-appropriate portion sizes.

  • Foods are baked, never fried.

  • Items like rolls or sandwich bread are made with whole-grains.
