Students in Fresno Unified School District return to school on Monday, August 13, 2018.

There are 106 schools and 74,000 students in the district, and healthy meals are an important part of a good education.

Tayhana Garcia spent the morning at the Fresno Unified School District's Nutrition Center to get a look at how schools are creating healthier choices for the upcoming school year.

Tayhana talked to Jose Alvarado, Fresno Unified Food Services Director.

Jose said they prepare 58,000 free lunches and 25,000 free breakfasts every day.

He also said there is a free app you can download to see what is on the menu.

The app also shows nutritional values and allows you to rate the meals so the district knows what foods to keep and which ones need to be replaced.
