  • Smart Snacks

     

    A primary component of our Wellness Program is awareness of healthy eating.  To help in this goal, the U.S. Department of Agriculture has established Smart Snacks Guidelines.  You can find a guide to Smart Snacks in schools at the following website: 

    USDA - A Guide to Smart Snacks in School

     We also have access to a Smart Snacks Calculator that allows you to enter information on a specific product to determine if it meets the Smart Snacks guidelines:
