Students who are well-fed are more likely to be focused and ready to learn. Building a healthier student body is the mission of the Waltham School Nutrition Department. Our mission represents our commitment of providing well-balanced meals to help students succeed and build a strong foundation for a healthy lifestyle. Under the direction of our Food Service Director and Dietitian, Waltham will continue to provide great tasting nutritious meals that meet the Federal nutrition guidelines. In addition, we will be creating some exciting new nutrition initiatives that promise to be a tremendous benefit to the entire school community.
