The Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) administers the National School Lunch Program, School Breakfast Program and After School Snack Program through its Food and Nutrition Division. In an effort to combat the childhood obesity epidemic and provide a healthy environment for the school children of Texas, TDA developed and administered the Texas School Nutrition Policy. All school cafeterias and dining areas should be healthy nutrition environments. Texas public schools participating in federal child nutrition programs should ensure that all students have daily access to school meals (breakfast and lunch).
Below, you will find the complete TDA Nutrition Policy packet (all in PDF format) for each school division (elementary, middle school, high school) as well as links to important pages in the packet.
