Allowable Snacks in the Classroom

Dear Parent/Guardian,

The Health Advisory Committee for the school district has met over the past two years to develop a healthy snack list for classrooms. The list provided below has been approved by the district as allowable snacks for the classroom. The list was compiled by the district Health Advisory Committee using feedback from the School Improvement Councils (during the 2017-18 school year), and parent survey responses from the spring of 2018. The snacks listed meet SMART Snack guidelines recommended by USDA.

Based upon USDA Nutrition Standards and School Board Policy ADF - District Wellness, the following list of approved snacks are the only allowable snacks for classroom celebrations or parties. No homemade goods are permitted. Snacks must be individually wrapped or in purchased container/package. Valentine’s Day parties are excluded from using the list.


Cheddar crackers or graham crackers
