Currituck County Child Nutrition is serving up nutritious meals with your student in mind. With the new guidelines set forth by federal and state regulations, you and your student will notice differences within their cafeteria from the way lines are set up to the required 1 serving of fruit or vegetable that is required for all reimbursable meals. Currituck County Child Nutrition is implementing whole wheat products, lower sodium, and 0 trans fat products. You and your student will find healthier choices from the serve lines to the a la carte items.
We welcome you to our cafeterias!
