Smart Snacks In Schools

Smart Snacks in Schools is mandated by the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The rule outlines standards for all foods sold in school outside of the school meals program. These practical, science-based standards for foods sold in vending machines, a la carte lines, fundraisers, etc are meant to make the healthy choice the easy choice for students.
