|Smart Snack Calculator|
The Alliance for a Healthier Generation has made available an online Smart Snacks Product Calculator to help school personnel and vendors determine if products comply with the USDA Smart Snacks in School nutrition standards. SNA-WI asks that all vendors use this tool and print out the results to supply attendees during all food shows so that school nutrition professionals can easily identify qualifying food and beverage items. More information is available on the Department of Public Instruction (DPI)’s All Foods Sold in Schools/Smart Snacks in Schools: http://fns.dpi.wi.gov/fns_smartsnacks.
For a demonstration of how the calculator works view the webcast: Abbreviated Version: Nutrition Standards for All Foods Sold in Schools (aka Smart Snacks) Webinar, 9/15/14, on the DPI SNT website. Posted with the webinar is a Q&A document to assist you, as well as a copy of the PowerPoint used in the webinar.
School nutrition professionals are looking for products that meet the new Smart Snack regulations. Having this information for your products will save them the time of individually using the calculator for each product seen and will immediately give them the assurance that your product is a product that they can use in their programs.
