Nutrition Tip
Cut-up fruit makes a great snack. Either cut them yourself, or buy pre-cut packages of fruit pieces like pineapples or melons. Or, try whole fresh berries or grapes.
Reference: USDA. Internet:

Non-compliant foods may be sold from 1/2 hour after school through the end of the day.  These standards carefully balance science-based nutrition guildelines with practical and flexible solutions to promote healthier eating on campus.
