Welcome to Child Nutrition Services

  • Fort Worth Independent School District is dedicated to student success. To support that mission, Child Nutrition Services' goal is to improve the health and well-being of children by preparing and serving attractive, nutritious meals at a reasonable price. 

    The CNS mission is to meet or exceed dietary guidelines, provide appropraite, outstanding menu choices and promote nutrition education among our customers - the students.  


    It’s here!!!  FWISD’s Child Nutrition Department’s new Menu App, MealViewer, is up and running for parents and students.   Students can view the menu, leave feedback, track nutritionals and view allergens.  Menus can be printed and items marked as favorites in order to be reminded when they will be on the menu again!
