Helena Public Schools Breakfast & Lunch Program
The Helena Public Schools Breakfast and Lunch Program has always prided itself on providing nutritious and healthy meals for all Helena students. Staff members are trained to recognize and encourage children to eat a complete well-balanced meal. While there will always be a delicate balance between what children want to eat and what the lunch program serves, we believe we have and will continue to meet this balance by listening to our customers, guiding and training our staff and implementing all of the tools at our disposal.

National School Lunch Program
The Helena Public Schools Breakfast and Lunch Program participates in the National School Lunch Program (NSLP). As participants, we must serve lunches consistent with the applicable recommendations of the most recent Dietary Guidelines for Americans (the Food Pyramid), including a variety of foods; a diet with plenty of grain products, vegetables and fruits; a diet moderate in sugars and salt; and a diet with 30% or less of calories from fat and less than 10% of calories from saturated fat. Additionally, lunches must provide, on average over each school week, at least 1/3 of the daily Recommended Dietary Allowances for protein, iron, calcium, and vitamins A and C. School lunches must meet Federal nutrition requirements, but decisions about what specific foods to serve and how they are prepared are made by local school food service personnel.
