Scott County School District 2 Uses Digital Platform to be on Forefront of School Nutrition

Scott County School District 2 School Nutrition announces their continued partnership with Nutrislice digital menus. Gone are the days of the printed menu, as Scott 2 school nutrition uses the app, website, and social media to communicate with students, parents, and staff. The smartphone app and menus website shows each day’s menu, including pictures, descriptions, detailed nutrition information, allergen and special diet info, and more for every food item. The department Facebook page, SCSD2 School Nutrition, has over 300 Likes and is continuing to grow.

"As mobile devices become more and more integral in our user's everyday lives, we are excited to provide a free app that provides parents and students with important information about the foods we’re serving each day and make that information easily accessible," said Leigh Anne Peterson, School Nutrition and Wellness Director. "The continuation of our app and menus format, speaks to our commitment to inspire healthy eating choices and provide more transparency around school lunch.”

The District is proud of the staff commitment to provide meals that are nutritious as well as appetizing. In the month of October, the school nutrition staff served close to 30,000 lunches, over 10,000 breakfasts, and 2,445 after-school snacks. On average, 64% of Scott 2’s students are eating school lunch, while 22% are eating breakfast at school.

Scott 2 joins school districts all over the country to use Nutrislice’s app to show healthy meal options. The app is offered for free on both the Apple App Store for iPhones and Google Play for Android phones. It can also be reached on the web by going to
