Smart Snacks for Schools
Does your school follow USDA guidelines for offering smart snacks in schools? As Carolina Fresh visits public schools throughout Wake County, many do not follow the guidelines. You can learn more about the USDA's recommendations here: https://www.fns.usda.gov/tn/guide-smart-snacks-school
A common misconception about offering healthier options in schools is that the students will not like the healthier options and will therefore not buy them.

You will notice options that most kids would enjoy: Popcorn, tortilla chips, flavored water, etc. Not only are these better choices than a doughnut or a candy bar, they are good tasting alternatives that kids enjoy.
