Food for Thought: Turkey Sandwich, It’s All About Choice!


By Patti Rigby, Carbon School District Child Nutrition Director

The child nutrition program loves giving students healthy choices to keep school lunch exciting and new!

Two days each week, the second lunch option offered is a tasty turkey with cheese sandwich instead of our ever-popular peanut butter and jelly.

Our deli sliced turkey is Jennie-O brand. It delivers great quality and flavor with all the benefits of healthy, lean turkey, thus meeting all the USDA nutritional requirements and keeping students happy.

The turkey and cheese count towards the meat and protein credits to keep kids’ bones healthy and muscles strong.
