Nutrient Standards for Foods Available in School
The district's wellness policy directs the School Health Council to review and, if necessary, update nutrient standards for all competitive foods sold in the school buildings during the school day.
Competitive foods are those foods available at school other than through the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs. Competitive foods include a la carte items sold in the cafeterias, vending, fundraising, the school store, booster club sales, classroom parties, and holiday celebrations.
The policy also references the Nutritional Standards for Competitive Foods in Pennsylvania Schools, a set of standards created by the Pennsylvania Department of Education.
Our district's policy sets local standards for the secondary school buildings and follows the Commonwealth's standards for the elementary schools. View these standards below.
