Healthy Classroom Party
  • School parties are fun! Everyone looks forward to the activities, social interactions, decorations, and much more. Let's make classroom parties both fun and healthy. Put the focus of the party on the games and exciting activities, rather than on food. If food is offered at a party, be sure that it's not the main focus. For healthy celebrations, ensure that all foods provided meet the Wellness Policy's specific nutrition standards:


    - Not more than 30% of the total calories of the food item, excluding nuts or seeds, is from fat. 

    - Not more than 10% of the total of the total calories of the food item, excluding reduced-fat cheeses, eggs, and nut butters, is from saturated fat. 

    - Not more than 35% of the total weight of the food item, excluding fruits or vegetables, is compsed of sugar.
