Rowland Unified School District Approved Food List - Smart Snacks

USDA's Smart Snacks in school standards are practical, science-based nutrition standards for all foods and beverages sold or served to students during the school day.

The new rule went into effect July 1, 2014 and merges the previous California Nutrition Standards. 

The following list is of foods and beverages that meet the standards for all grade levels. This list is not all inclusive. Alternative items may be available at different stores. Manufactures' ingredients and distribution change frequently.

If you have additional questions, please contact Maria Davila, Director of Nutrition Services at (626) 854-8312.
