Welcome to Child Nutrition!

Good nutrition and learning go hand in hand.

The Nutrition Services department is made up of a team of food and nutrition professionals that are dedicated to students' health, well being and their ability to learn. We support learning by promoting healthy habits for lifelong nutrition and fitness practices.

Meals, foods and beverages sold or served at schools meet state and federal requirements which are based on the USDA Dietary Guidelines. We provide students with access to a variety of affordable and appealing foods that meet the health and nutrition needs of students.

The Child Nutrition Department of Joshua ISD is a nonprofit enterprise that employs over 60 food service professionals. We take pride in serving our customers a variety of delicious and nourishing meals through our breakfast and lunch program at all campuses, serving over 650,000 meals yearly.

The program’s objective is to improve the health of students by providing a variety of high quality, safe, nutritious foods that students will enjoy eating at a price affordable to them. The menus are planned and analyzed in accordance with federal and state guidelines for proper school age nutrition.
