1 Chesapeake Public Schools School Nutrition Services July 2014 1

2 The School Nutrition Environment Improving the nutritional profile of all foods sold in school is critical to: improving diet and overall health of American children; ensuring children from all income levels adopt healthful eating habits that will enable them to live productive lives; and helping children make healthier choices and reduce their risk of obesity. 2

3 Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act 2010 Provided USDA authority to establish nutrition standards for all foods and beverages sold outside of the Federal child nutrition programs in schools. The law specifies that the nutrition standards shall apply to all foods sold: outside the school meal programs; on the school campus; and at any time during the school day. 3

4 Where? Including: a la carte in the cafeteria in school stores snack bars vending machines other venues Implementation by: July 1, 2014 4

5 State and Local Flexibility The nutrition standards included in the interim final rule (currently in comment period) for all foods sold in school are minimum standards. State agencies and school districts may establish additional standards. (VA is considering standards at this time.) State or local standards must be consistent with Federal standards. 5

7 What are competitive foods? Competitive food: all food and beverages sold to students on the School campus during the School day, other than those meals reimbursable under programs authorized by the National School Lunch Act and the Child Nutrition Act. 7

15 Elementary schools may sell up to 8-ounce portions, while middle schools and high school may sell up to 12-ounce portions of milk and juice. There is no portion size limit for plain water. 15

16 No-calorie and lower-calorie beverage options for high school students: No more than 20-ounce portions Calorie free, flavored water (with or without carbonation); and Other flavored and/or carbonated beverages that are labeled to contain <5 calories per 8 fluid ounces or ≤10 calories per 20 fluid ounces. No more than 12-ounce portions Beverages with ≤ 40 calories per 8 fluid ounces, or ≤60 calories per 12 fluid ounces. 16

17 Fundraisers The sale of food items that meet nutrition requirements at fundraisers are not limited in any way under the standards. The standards do not apply during non-school hours, on weekends and at off-campus fundraising events. The state of Virginia has decided NOT to allow any exemptions. ALL fundraisers must meet the nutrition standards. 17

18 Recordkeeping Local Educational Authorities (LEAs) and School Food Authorities (SFAs) maintain record such as receipts, nutrition labels and product specifications. LEAs maintain records for all other competitive food sales. SFAs maintain records for competitive foods sold under the nonprofit school food service account. 18

19 Next Steps for CPS Monitor state legislation as it relates to USDA regulations for competitive food compliance. Insure that all foods sold within the school nutrition program meet federal guidelines. Assist building administrators in review of current fundraisers/food sales to determine compliance. Provide building administrators tools (nutrition calculator) to identify approved products. 19
