Smart Snacks In Schools 2015

 

Beginning School Year 2015 there will be new nutrition standards for all foods served in schools during the school day, including vending machines and fundraisers.  

"The Smart Snacks in School nutrition standards support better health for our kids and echo the good work already taking place in schools across the country. The new standards preserve flexibility for time-honored traditions like fundraisers and bake sales, and provide ample transition time for schools. USDA is committed to working closely with students, parents, school stakeholders and the food and beverage industries to implement the new guidelines, and make the healthy choice the easy choice for America’s young people." USDA website
