Smart Snacks

  • All schools within Washoe County School District are subject to strict nutrition regulations for any and all food that is served to students on school property by school administration outside Nutrition Services any time before, during, and up to half an hour after every school day.

    In WCSD, as outlined by the Board of Trustees, this includes both foods that are sold and foods that are given away.

    Originally incepted by the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, these regulations are passed down by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) and the Nevada Department of Agriculture (NDA), the governing bodies and funding sources for our school nutrition and wellness programs. Smart Snack compliance requires schools to submit information on "exception days", which can be done here.
