CDC Nutrition Standards for Foods in Schools

Nutrition Standards for Foods in Schools: Leading the Way Toward
Healthier Youth is available from the CDC.

Nutrition Standards for Foods in Schools

The CDC developed a set of four audience-specific fact sheets as a resource for school
staff, parents, and youth to use in support of developing strong
nutrition standards that will impact the health of students at school.
These fact sheets answer commonly asked questions about the Nutrition
Standards for Foods in Schools report and provide recommendations for
implementing them.

The various fact sheets can be downloaded from the following website link.

1. For Parents, Guardians, Teachers, and School Staff
2. For School Boards, School Districts, and Other School Administrators
3. For School Nutrition Service Personnel
4. For Students

These fact sheets can be used to help develop and support strong nutrition
standards for foods in schools.
