C. Nutrition-The AISD Food Services Department has made it easier for campus-based staff to make healthier nutrition choices. They spotlight a fruit or vegetable each month. This month, the fruit is BANANA. Did you know that bananas are the most popular fresh fruit in the United States. Bananas are a good source of fiber, potassium, and vitamin C. The Food Services Department provides fresh fruits and vegetables every day! By the way, you can find all of the nutritional information online at www.austinisd.org/schools/menus
D. Smoking Cessation-AISD is a partner with Austin Travis County Health and Human Services Department, and has received ARRA funding through the Communities Putting Prevention to Work to provide tobacco prevention and cessation programs. We’ll kick off the smoking cessation program in November on the National Smoke-Out Day!
