Snacks served during the school day or after school programs will make a positive contribution to children’s diet with an emphasis on healthful food and beverage options. Snacks sent into class for group consumption should be in consideration of any food allergies in the classroom. Group snacks including *nutrient-dense choices are strongly encouraged. Beverages consisting of 100% fruit or vegetable juice, nonfat or low fat milk varieties, or water are also suggested. Snacks should be given with 1 hour or more allowance before or after the
school meals are served.
