The Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 directed the USDA to establish nutrition standards for all foods and
beverages sold to students in school during the school day, including foods sold through school fundraisers. The new
Smart Snacks in School nutrition standards will help schools to make the healthy choice the easy choice by offering
students more of the foods and beverages we should be encouraging – whole grains, fruits and vegetables, leaner
protein, lower-fat dairy – while limiting foods with too much sugar, fat and salt.
