Celebrations and Rewards 

All foods offered on the school campus will meet or exceed the USDA Smart Snacks in School nutrition standards (or state standards) to include: 

1. Celebrations and Parties. The district will provide a list of healthy party ideas to parents and teachers, including non-food celebration ideas. Healthy party ideas from the Alliance for a Healthier Generation and from the USDA. Because of the increase in food allergies and intolerances, it is recommended that parents provide non-food items for birthday celebrations instead of cupcakes or food items. 

2. Classroom snacks brought by parents. The District will provide to parents a list of foods and beverages that meet Smart Snacks nutrition standards
