Quality Food Choices for the Body and Mind
Fairmont Schools takes great pride in the overall quality of the educational experience and we believe that providing quality choices for the body and mind are equally important. With this in mind, Fairmont has made significant improvements in the food service offerings that are going to be available to our students. This includes partnering with Nutrition Management Services, our new food service provider, to improve and diversify the choices that our students will have available to them. The new company is currently working on a nutritional, diverse menu that will be introduced this year. More information will be available to you shortly. We look forward to a fantastic year.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What can I eat so that I have more energy at practice and perform my best during a game?
Leslie: For kids and teenagers involved in athletic activities, good nutrition is important for growth, development, and sports performance. It is important to eat a variety of foods to provide the fuel for growth, sports performance and recovery. Grains, such as rice, bread, cereal, and pasta and the fruit and vegetable group provide carbohydrates needed for quick energy. Whole grains found in bread and some cereals also provide extra fiber. Fruits and vegetables are high in vitamins needed for proper growth, but they can also contribute as a source of fluid, because the water content of juice or a fresh salad is high.
Foods from the dairy group - milk, cheese, and yogurt (even frozen yogurt) - provide carbohydrates, protein, and fat. Dairy containing foods are also rich in calcium and vitamin D contributing to strong bones and are involved in muscle contraction. Protein foods, such as lean meat, poultry, fish, eggs, dry beans and lentils, and tofu, provide protein needed for energy and healthy muscles. Timing of meals or snacks, appropriate hydration, and refueling are also important issues to consider in sports nutrition.
Q: How does the time I eat affect the energy I have at practice or during a game?
Leslie: Yes. Regular meals and snacks contribute to optimal energy levels. When you skip meals, it adds stress to the body, so the muscles can’t perform as well. Regular meals and snacks help the body keep energy levels adequate for activity. Each meal and snack should contain foods and drinks that contain both carbohydrates and protein.
