Fresh & Health Vending Machines
USDA recently published practical, science-based nutrition standards for snack foods and beverages sold to children at school during the school day. The standards, required by the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, will allow schools to offer healthier snack foods to children, while limiting junk food. Now is the time to get a Fresh and Healthy Vending Machine in your school, as the days of junk food in schools near extinction. Smart Snacks in School support efforts by school food service staff, school administrators, teachers, parents and the school community, all working hard to instill healthy habits in students.
