Assembly Bill 841 

This bill prohibits a school, school district, or charter school from advertising food or beverages during the school day that do not comply with nutrition standards of Smart Snacks In Schools.  Please review the Quick Reference Card to determine if the food or beverage fundraiser and promotional materials are compliant with this new law.


Board Policy for Foods Available at School

Nutrition standards adopted by the district for all foods and beverages sold to students, including foods and beverages provided throughout the district's food service program, student stores, vending machines, fundraisers, or other venues, shall meet or exceed state and federal nutrition standards. 

Organizations are encouraged to use non-food items or healthy foods where appropriate, for fundraising.  Staff are encouraged to avoid the use of non-nutritious foods as a reward for students' academic performance, accomplishments, or classroom behavior.

 

Parents/guardians or other volunteers are encouraged to support the district's nutrition education program by considering nutritional quality when electing any snacks which they may donate for occasional class parties, and by eliminating foods or beverages that do not meet nutritional standards and are not commercially prepared.  Class parties or celebrations shall be held after the lunch period, and no more frequently than once per month.
