Child Nutrition and Menus

Our Food Service Department provides nutritionally balanced breakfast and lunch menus that also provide appeal to our students. Based on the knowledge that our students require a certain amount of energy from carbohydrates, protein, and fats to function properly, we provide menus that assure that they receive a variety of foods. This helps our students get all of the necessary nutrients and other substances associated with good health and clear thinking.

Breakfast Schedule

Breakfast is served from 8:00 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. daily at Kings Ridge and Riverside.

Why Breakfast At School
When students start the day with a nutritious breakfast, they start the day ready to learn. Some students skip breakfast at home because they are not hungry when they first wake up. Many families find it difficult for their children to get up, dressed, fed, and off to school. When parents rely on the school breakfast program, they can be assured that their child will receive a healthy breakfast every day. Riverside School District offers breakfast in the classroom for students at Riverside Traditional and Kings Ridge at no cost!
