School nutrition has a huge juggling act in trying to offer health options while still appealing to student tastes. To that end, the district’s Food Service Department is happy to offer a flavored coffee bar to students and staff at Liberty High School. This will begin in April.
Students can choose among three 10-ounce coffee flavors for 75 cents. Coffee will be discounted to $0.50 if a student selects a breakfast meal. Staff may purchase a cup of coffee for one dollar. Half and half, milk and non-diary creamers will also be available. Each cup is under 60 calories. Flavors are unsweetened, and may include breakfast blend, French vanilla or “snicker kicker.”
Under state guidelines, a 10-ounce cup of coffee is the largest size that can be served to students during school hours.
