Five Fruits or Vegetables per Day at School

The initiative to get more fruits and vegetables into the students of Knox County Schools daily diets has prompted the School Nutrition Program to offer an additional fruit or vegetable to the student meal offerings at both breakfast and lunch.   The current standards for the National School Meals Program is that the breakfast meal should contain one cup serving of fruit, vegetable or 100% fruit or vegetable juice and the lunch pattern included two fruit or vegetable servings. 

Knox County Schools will be providing a minimum of 3 servings of fresh fruit and vegetables at both breakfast and lunch for students at no additional cost to the meal. 

Also, the recommendation of various nutritional advocacy groups is, that everyone should consume 5 fruits and vegetables each day for optimum health benefits. 

Fruits and vegetables can be a great source of the following important nutrients:

  • Fiber: Diets rich in fiber have a number of beneficial effects, including decreased risk of coronary heart disease.
  • Magnesium: Supports normal muscle and nerve function, a steady heart rhythm and a healthy immune system.
  • Folate:Adequate folate in the diet may reduce a woman’s risk of having a child with a brain or spinal cord defect.
  • Potassium: Helps to maintain a healthy blood pressure.
  • Vitamin A: Keeps eyes and skin healthy and helps protect against infections.
  • Vitamin C: Helps heal cuts and wounds and keeps teeth and gums healthy.
