to our Child Nutrition website. My name is Scott Soiseth and I am the Child Nutrition Director.
Studies show that healthy eating and daily physical activity have a profound impact on the body and mind by improving the ability to learn and comprehend, boosting energy, improving school attendance and changing attitudes, behavior and more.

Thus, the Turlock Unified School District (TUSD) is committed to providing school environments that promote and protect children's health, well-being, and ability to learn by supporting healthy eating and physical activity.
Beginning this year we will be providing nutritional information for our menus, along with expanding our website to include materials and resources to support healthy food choices through increased access and consumption of fruits and vegetables. Read through our Wellness Policy for our commitment to our students and their families and visit our site often for updates!
