In advance of Valentine's Day, PreventObesity.net is collecting stories about Smart Snacks Sweethearts―people doing outstanding work to make sure that all the snacks in schools are Smart Snacks! As you may know, Smart Snacks are the U.S. Department of Agriculture's nutrition standards for food sold in school snack bars, vending machines and a la carte lines.
There are many people – parents, school nutrition professionals, students, teachers, school nurses, administrators and others – in schools across the country already making the grade when it comes to implementing Smart Snacks in School. When stories are submitted, we’ll create a map showing stories across the country, and then send all the Sweethearts Valentine's Day cards from supporters.
If you know someone who deserves to be honored for their work on Smart Snacks, tell us their story! Even if you don’t have someone in mind, check out our map of Sweethearts across the country. And stay tuned around Valentine’s Day so you can thank them all for their hard work.
