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.  For more information on Smarts Snacks in schools, please see the following website and guide: 

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:
