Smart Snacks in Florida’s Schools – Take Action!

untitledIn 2013, the USDA released updated nutrition standards for snack and a la carte foods and beverages. The updated standards, called “Smart Snacks in School,” are a great start toward giving our kids the healthy choices they need in school.  The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services is working on the state rule now.

We need your help to create policies that ensure these standards are implemented in order to make healthy snacks a reality in every school in Florida. You can help by telling the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services that you want our kids to have healthy choices in schools! Click HERE to let the department know what they can do to make our schools healthier.
