Healthy Treats Guidance

Snacks served during the school day or in after-school programs should make a positive contribution to children’s diets and health, with an emphasis on serving fruits and vegetables, whole grains, as the primary snacks and milk, water or 100% juice as the primary beverages.

School staff will encourage parents/guardians or other volunteers to support the District’s nutrition education program by choosing nutritional quality when selecting any snacks which they may donate for occasional class parties.

Schools will limit celebrations that involve food during the school day to no more than one party per class per month.

Class parties or celebrations shall be held after the lunch period and only foods that meet or exceed state and federal nutritional standards can be served.
