What is Smart Snacks in School?

Simply put, Smart Snacks in School is a healthy end to the days of vending machines loaded with soft drinks, candy, pastries and chips that students bought generating additional and much needed revenue for schools. Starting July 1st, 2014 USDA regulations go into effect limiting the amount of calories, fat, sodium and sugar found in ALL FOODS sold during the school day. In the past competitive food sales had little or no regulation which inturn under minded the wellness of our students. Few foods were not allowed because they were considered to have no nutrition value. Items like chewing gum, and ice waters are just two examples. There were more foods allowed than not allowed. USDA's federal regulation titled "Nutrition Standards for All Foods Sold in School" as Required by the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, sets new standards for all foods sold. USDA starteddown this new road to wellness with the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs by setting new standards for healthy meals but that only fixed half of the problem. It did not include other foods sold throught out the day at breaks, in school groups and clubs, and as fundraisers plus at many other events during the school day. Smart Snacks in School fills the gap between breakfast and lunch regulations and provides guidelines for a healthier student.  (for more information click here)
