     Health and Wellness

    Nutritious meals are the foundation of any healthy eating plan and the school breakfast and lunch meals remain the cornerstone of all school based child nutrition programs. It is the position of Chartwells School Dining Services  and HISD that we become active participants in fostering healthy school environments in the communities that we serve. Creating a healthy school environment involves the collaboration of many, including Administrators, Parents, and School Dining Managers. At Chartwells, we take this responsibility very seriously and aim to be an integral part of the wellness solution.


    Nutrition Education

    Since students spend a significant portion of their day in the school environment, schools are uniquely positioned to convey the fundamentals of good health to students. Teaching students about wellness during the school aged years, builds a foundation for a healthy and productive life.
