Arizona Competitive Food Guidelines

The United States Department of Agriculture has published, science-based nutrition standards for snack foods and beverages sold at schools to students in grades K-12. These standards, required by the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, will ensure schools to offer healthier snacks and beverages to children. 

Mesa Public Schools District Wellness Policy requires that these same nutrition standards apply to foods sold or served to students in grades K-8.
