Starting in School Year 2014-15, all foods sold at school during the school day are required to meet nutrition standards.
The Smart Snacks in School regulation applies to foods sold a la carte, in the school store,
vending machines, and any other venues where food is sold to students.
Students can consume almost half of their daily calories when they are at school.
Although school vending machines can be a convenient source of food and beverages
throughout the day, the items sold should be healthy options.
