 Farm Fresh Fridays    School Breakfast Program
The Farm Fresh Fridays initiative offers a new and exciting way to engage students about the foods served in their school and inspire strong, sustainable connections to local food, and Texas farmers and ranchers. Plus, it assist to build relationships between schools and agriculture producers so that schools can add more local flavor to their menus

The FFVP helps to improve children’s overall diet by creating healthier food choices and expanding the variety of fruits and vegetables the children experience.


The School Breakfast program allows children in All Schools to eat a healthy meal every morning at no cost to the student.

Child and Adult Care Program   National School Lunch Program

The Child and Adult care program (CACFP) provides federal funds to after school programs to serve Nutritious meals to all middle and high school students during the school year.


The National School Lunch Program is a federally assisted meal program operating in public and nonprofit private schools and residential child care institutions. It provides nutritionally balanced, low-cost or free lunches to All children each school day.

After School Snack Program   Summer Food Service Program

The After School Snack Program gives children at the Elementary and Intermediate level a nutritional boost (Meals include fat free or low fat milk and a serving of meat or meat alternate.) and draws them into supervised activities that are safe, fun and filled with learning opportunities.


The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) ensures that children continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session.


All meals served through the Child and Adult Care Food Program must meet USDA nutritional guidelines. Suppers (and dinners) must include all of the following:




More fruits and vegetables every day

Kids have fruits and vegetables at school every day. A variety of vegetables are served throughout the week  including red, orange, and dark-green vegetables. At Aldine we offer our K-12 students with 3 fruit options daily as well as multiple vegetable offerings.

(1%)  milk varieties offered
Children get the same calcium and other nutrients, but with fewer calories and less saturated fat by drinking low-fat (1%) milk. For children who can’t drink milk due to allergies or lactose intolerance, schools can offer milk substitutes, such as calcium-fortified soy beverages. Aldine offers low-fat (1%) regular and reduced-sugar chocolate milk at all schools.

More whole grains

All of the grains offered with school lunch program  are whole-grain rich food s such as whole-grain pasta, brown rice, and oatmeal.

A variety of foods are offered to reduce the salt and saturated fat in school meals. Main dishes may include beans, peas, nuts, tofu, or seafood as well as lean meats or poultry. Ingredients and foods contain less salt (sodium).
