Smart Snacks In School


Starting in school year 2014-15, all foods sold to students at school during the school day will need to meet Smart Snacks in School Regulations nutrition standards. The Smart Snacks in School regulation applies to foods sold a la carte, in the school store, and vending machines. This new federal ruling is intended to help offer healthier items to students with more fruits, vegetables, whole grains and proteins.
