On June 27, 2013 the USDA announced the Smart Snacks in School interim regulation. It is effective July 1, 2014.  This regulation establishes nutrition standards for all foods sold to students at school outside of the federally reimbursable meals served through the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs. Side items, snack foods, beverages, and any entrées not served as part of a reimbursable meal will need to comply with the nutrition standards, including calorie, fat, sugar and sodium limits, in order to be sold to students in school.  Additional information can be found at: http://www.fns.usda.gov/cnd/governance/legislation/allfoods.htm
