About Nutrition Services
The Gilbert Public Schools Nutrition Services Department is made up of an experienced team of nutrition professionals that are dedicated to providing our students with the best possible dining experience.
We are proud to employ three excellent Registered Dietitians on our staff with over 50 years of combined experience in school nutrition service.
We participate in a nutrition service system called "Offer versus Serve", offering a variety of healthy choices to our students each day including whole grains, fresh fruits & vegetables, lean meats, and low-fat milk.
We offer 5 different food components at lunch: Fruit, Vegetables, Grains, Milk, and Protein. Students select at least 3 food items from 3 different food components including 1/2 cup of fruit/fruit juice, or vegetables.
We offer 3 different food components at breakfast: Fruit, Grains/Protein, and Milk. Students select at least 3 food items including 1/2 cup of fruit/fruit juice.
For a balanced meal with the best nutrition, we encourage our students to select food items from all of the offered food components.
