Austin ISD Nutrition and Food Services are 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:

  • grain products that contain 50 percent or more whole grains by weight (whole grain listed as the first ingredient);
  • has the first ingredient a fruit, vegetable, dairy product or protein food;
  • a combination food containing at least ¼ cup fruit and/or vegetable;
  • the food must meet nutrient standards for calories, sodium, sugar and fats.  

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