Smart Snacks in School:
USDA's "All foods Sold in Schools" Standards

The following standards are required by the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 which allow schools to offer healthier snack foods to children, while limiting junk food.

Nutrition Standards for Foods:
Any food sold in schools must:
  • Be a "whole grain-rich" grain product
  • Have as the first ingredient a fruit, a vegetable, a dairy product, or a protein food
  • Be a combination food that contains at least 1/4 cup of fruit and/or vegetable
  • Contain 10% of the Daily Value (DV) of one of the nutrients of public health concern in the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans (calcium, potassium, vitamin D, or dietary fiber).*
Foods must also meet several nutrient requirements:
  • Calorie limits:
    • Snack items: < 200 calories
    • Entrée items: < 350 calories
  • Sodium limits:
    • Snack items: < 230 mg**
    • Entrée items: < 480 mg
  • Fat limits:
    • Total fat: < 35% of calories
    • Saturated fat: < 10% of calories

  • Sugar limit:
    • < 35% of weight from total sugars in foods
* On July 1, 2016 foods may not qualify using the 10% DV criteria.
