Smart Snacks

AISD is proud to offer students healthy à la carte Smart Snacks sold in the cafeteria.  

Smart Snacks Standards are a federal requirement for all foods sold outside the National School Lunch Program and School Breakfast Program.  

To qualify as a Smart Snack, the item must meet the following general nutrition standards:

  • contains 50 percent or more whole grains by weight (whole grain listed as the first ingredient);
  • the first ingredient is a fruit, vegetable, dairy product or protein food;
  • contains at least one-quarter cup fruit and/or vegetables or
  • meets nutrient standards for calories, sodium, sugar and fats.

Parents may set Smart Snack restrictions on a student's account by contacting their cafeteria manager.

Special Dietary Needs

AISD operates the National School Meals Program of the United States Department of Agriculture  and follows the guidelines for accommodating children with special needs. 

Menu changes may be provided for either: 

  • Students who have a disability that requires an Individual Education Plan or a 504 plan and also have a special dietary need.
  • Students who do not have a disability covered by the Americans with Disability Act, but who have a disease that is life-threatening or a food allergy that requires immediate medical attention such as an EpiPen to treat anaphylactic shock.  

To receive menu changes:

  • Obtain a copy of a Request for Dietary Accommodation form at the links below or from the school nurse.
  • The form must be completed and signed by a medical doctor who is licensed to practice in Texas. 
  • Return the completed form to the school nurse or cafe manager.
  • The form will be evaluated and the parent or guardian will be informed if the special need request meets the requirements of the regulations.  

For children who do not meet the definition of a disability or who do not have a food allergy or disease that is life threatening that requires alternate menu provisions, but have a food allergy can also have a physician fill out a "Request for Dietary Accommodation" form and reasonable accommodations will also be made for that student. 

Allergens for all menu items can be found at www.schoolcafe.com.

Vegetarian/Vegan Diets: Vegetarian options are offered daily on all AISD menus.  Vegan options are available daily upon request. Please let the cafeteria manager know that your child is interested in a vegan option daily and we will make accommodations.  

Soy milk and gluten free bread are available upon request from parents. These requests do not need a request for dietary accommodations form or other note from a physician.
