Child Nutrition Staff
Nutrition Facts: Every month the Nutrition Facts for each campus meal will be posted. Keep in mind, it is an average of all the items that we offer. The Healthy, Hunger-Free Act bill took effect in the school year 2012-13. At this time Lytle ISD Child Nutrition serves fresh fruits and vegetables daily and, we are within the USDA guidelines in fats, sodium, sugar, and calories.
Lunch Charging Policy: Students are allowed to charge a maximum of 3 days (full paid $8.55 for Junior High and High School, $7.80 for Elementary and Primary and $1.20 for all reduced students.) An alternate meal will be served until the balance is paid. Alternate meals consist of a sandwich and milk. Free and Reduced Lunch Applications are available at Food Service Department Office. Only lunch meals can be charged to the student's account.

USDA National School Meal Programs
The Food and Nutrition Service administers several programs that provide healthy food to children including the National School Lunch Program, School Breakfast Program, Child and Adult Care Food Program, Summer Food Service Program, Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program, and Special Milk Program. Administered by state agencies, each of these programs helps fight hunger and obesity by reimbursing organizations such as schools, child care centers, and after-school programs for providing healthy meals to children.
