USDA Smart Snacks

Dear Parents,

HealthMPowers is a nonprofit organization that promotes healthy habits to build a better future for all children. The organization combines nutrition education and physical activity into everyday life and learning. Our school has partnered with HealthMPowers to promote healthy habits for our students and their families.

As part of our HealthMPowers Team, I wanted to share some nutrition information with you. We are asking that all food and beverages offered and served to students during the school day meet or exceed the USDA’s Smart Snacks in School Nutrition Standard. Please see the links below for more information. Listed in the links is how to calculate if a snack meets the standard and there is a list of approved snacks. Fresh fruits and veggies are always a healthy snack. If you have any questions please contact me in the cafeteria.
