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.
