Smart Snacks in School Guidelines

The new USDA Snack Standards for schools, which is required by the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, now ensures students across the country receive nutritious & healthy foods during the school day.

USDA’s Nutrition Standards for any food sold in schools must meet the following criteria:
  • Be a “whole grain-rich” grain product; or
  • Have the first ingredient a fruit, a vegetable, a dairy product, or a protein food; or
  • Be a combination food that contains at least 1/4 cup of fruit and/or vegetable;
Besides the nutrition standards, snack foods in school must also meet the following nutrient requirements:
  • Snack Item Calorie Limit: ≤200 calories
  • Snack Item Sodium Limit: ≤200 mg.
  • Snack Item Fat Limit: ≤35% of calories
  • Snack Item Sugar Limit: ≤35% of weight from total sugars
Shop from our Smart Snack Lists below to ensure you're following the USDA regulations for all the snack foods sold in school.
