Nutrition & Wellness Policy

District Policy Information

  • Lake Stevens Nutrition and Physical Fitness Policy  Policy #3610, Revised: 8/13/2014   
  • Every building/department is responsible for complying with the district wellness policy.
  • Food and beverages sold during the "school day" must meet the building's age-appropriate nutrition and portion size standards. School day is defined as midnight before to half hour after school is released.

Best Practices:

  • A binder works great to keep track of your approved items being sold during the school day.
  • These documents demonstrate compliance.
  • Documentation of products offered, including nutrition facts label with listed ingredients should be on file and available.
  • Any item sold should be checked for compliance by utilizing the Smart Snacks Product Calculator. The calculator provides a print out stating if the product is compliant or not. Keep this for your documented records.
