Already, more than 5,300 of you have raised your voices to let your state nutrition leaders know that you support Smart Snacks in School standards, and to urge them to make implementing them a top priority. If you haven’t already, take action to let your local leaders know that you support the new standards too!
Jessica Donze Black, Director of the Kids' Safe and Healthful Foods Project at Pew Charitable Trusts, says, “As a parent, I know it is our responsibility to ensure our kids are healthy and ready to succeed in school and beyond. Studies show that children get better grades and miss fewer classes when they have a more balanced diet.”
