• 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 Smart Snack standards, practical, science-based nutrition standards established by USDA for all foods and beverages sold to students during the school day.
