Nutrition Standards for School Meals
Federal, State and Local Standards have been set that govern what food may be provided to students during school hours.
Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) updated the nutrition standards for reimbursable school meals and established nutrition standards for all other foods served outside the school meals program at any time during the school day.
Each School district that participates in the National School Lunch Program, National School Breakfast Program, Supper Meals, or Summer Meal Service is required by federal law to establish a local school wellness policy for all schools under its jurisdiction. A local school wellness policy is a written document of official policies that guide the school district’s efforts to establish a school environment that promotes students’ health, well-being, and ability to learn by supporting healthy eating and physical activity.
DISTRICT WELLNESS POLICY
CCSD Regulation -5157 reinforces the above local standards and further highlights the areas of smart snacks generated revenue, special occasions, reimbursable meals and exempt areas.
WHAT FOODS MAY BE DISTRIBUTED TO STUDENTS DURING SCHOOL HOURS?
Starting in School Year 2014-15, all foods sold or given away at school during the school day are required to meet nutrition standards. The Smart Snacks in School regulation applies to foods sold a la carte, in the school store, vending machines, and any other venues where food is sold or handed out to students during school hours. School hours are defined as from midnight before to 30 minutes after the end of the school day.
