May 2018 - Smart Snacks in Schools

  • Most U.S. children attend school for at least 6 hours a day and consume about half of their daily calories there.
  • In 2014, the USDA Smart Snacks Rule became Federal law, which requires schools to implement practical, science-based nutrition standards for all food and beverages sold to students during the school day.
  • Parents can help their child’s school meet the 2010 USDA Nutrition Standards by joining the school or district wellness committee, learning what your child’s school is already doing, or volunteering to help conduct taste tests of healthier snack and beverage options.
