Smart Snacks - Tools for Change!
Tuesday, April 8th at 2pm ET
Smart Snacks in School nutrition guidelines are fast approaching and administrator support is a key element to success. Learn how school administrators are taking the lead on this important issue and how you can engage with administrators in your own district. Identify free, easy-to-use tools to help take the guesswork out of Smart Snacks implementation, including sample communications pieces to get the word out in your community and technical tools such as our Product Calculator and online database of products meeting the new guidelines. In addition, find out about AASA’s Competitive Foods Policy Initiative, where superintendents are paired in a mentor/mentee relationship to assist each other with smooth adoption of the Smart Snacks in Schools guidelines. Let us help you engage district leaders and save time as you work toward the July 1st deadline!
