Smart Snacks and Healthy Beverages In Schools
Parents, districts, states and the nation have decided that it is time to change and raise the standards for the foods and beverages sold to students in schools. The USDA’s Smart Snacks in School nutrition standards published last year are science-based standards for all foods and beverages sold to students during the school day. Please click on our Smart Snack link for guidance and tools to help align the snacks and beverages sold around your school campus with the new “Smart Snacks” guidelines that went into effect on July 1, 2014. Keep an eye on our website for more useful tools to help you navigate the new rules when planning fundraisers, school parties, classroom rewards and more.
