Getting More Out Of Smart Snacks

What is Smart Snacks
The USDA’s “Smart Snacks in Schools” regulations are part of an ongoing effort to improve the diets of students across the country. The guidelines regulate foods and beverages sold outside the school meal programs, on the school campus, at any time during the school day. Starting school year 14/15, all products sold in schools outside of the National School Lunch Program or Breakfast Program must meet specific nutritional criteria based on calories, percent calories from fat, percent calories from saturated fat, trans fat, sodium, and sugar.
