Smart Snacks

‘Smart Snacks Standards’ are a Federal requirement for all foods sold outside the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program.  These standards were developed to promote student wellness.  More than a quarter of kids’ daily calories may come from snacks.  Kids who have healthy eating patterns are more likely to perform better academically.  Kids consume more healthy foods and beverages during the school day. When they are Smart Snacks, the healthy choice is the easy choice.   Click the following for additional Smart Snack information and resources:
