SCHOOL NUTRITION NEWSLETTER
Message from the Director
The Super Bowl has come and gone. As a lifelong Detroit Lions fan, I was happy to see their former quarterback Matthew Stafford and the Los Angeles Rams win. When Stafford was with the Lions, they never even won a playoff game, but in his first year with the Rams, he went all the way. What a difference it makes when you are welcomed to the right team! If there was a Child Nutrition Super Bowl, I definitely think we would win it. In the coming days, you will be completing Onboarding training so we can all play a part in welcoming new employees to keep our team strong. Below, you will see how several elementary teams came together to celebrate Valentine's Day with amazing creativity and love. The video from No Kid Hungry (who awarded us a grant to purchase a blast chiller at the high school) celebrates the impact our profession has on children. The strength and compassion I see in each of you is what makes our team stand head and shoulders above the rest!

Administrative Review: Smart Snacks in Schools
- All foods and beverages sold on the school campus (excluding reimbursable meals), during the school day (defined as 12 am on a day of instruction to 30 minutes after the end of the official school day), meet regulatory requirements. This includes a la carte items sold during meals, and foods/beverages sold in vending machines, school stores, and any other venue; and
- School sponsored fundraising limits are observed.
Any food sold during the school day must meet the Smart Snack standards. To find out if a food meets these guidelines, enter information from the nutrition label into the Smart Snacks Calculator.
