Urge Your State: We Expect an “A+” on School Snacks and Drinks
School lunchNationally, most students buy at least one sugary drink or snack every day in school – one of the many reasons why school food greatly affects their health. National guidelines are in place this year to make sure school snacks are healthy. YOUR VOICE is needed to make sure these changes are made in kids’ schools.
It is our responsibility to ensure kids are healthy and ready to succeed in school and beyond. Studies show that children get better grades and miss fewer classes when they have a balanced diet.
Ask your state leadership of child nutrition programs to ensure that schools are only selling healthy snacks today.
