Snacks, beverages and á la carte items across Lake Stevens School District have a new look and taste. They are now richer in whole grains, fruits and vegetables with fewer calories, fat, sugar and sodium. The changes align with the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Smart Snacks in Schools Guidelines and the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, which impact more than 100,000 schools throughout the nation. Those items that don’t meet the guidelines are no longer available in schools. This includes food sold in school vending machines during the school day.
