Smart Snacks are Here!

Smart Snacks in School nutrition standards are practical, science-based nutrition standards for all foods and beverages sold to students during the school day (outside of the school meals programs). This includes vending, à la carte, school stores, snack carts and fundraising. These nutrition standards put all foods and beverages sold to students across campus on a level playing field. Cookies, candy, chips, donuts and soda are being replaced with items like nuts or seeds, popcorn, baked chips, fruit cups and plain water.

Access to healthier foods and beverages is important because healthy, well-nourished students are better learners! Students who consume healthier foods and beverages are more likely to get the nutrients they need to learn, play and grow. As students continue to see a difference in their school meals, including more fruits, vegetables and whole grains, it is important to provide healthier foods and beverages outside of the cafeteria as well so we can continue to build on the great strides being made in the cafeteria!

Free or Reduced Meals

school meals encouraging fruits, veg. & whole grains


You may have heard that there are new requirements for school meals. Most of these new rules began in the school year 2012-2013. In preparation for these requirements the Lebanon Community Schools Nutrition Services Department has already been gradually making changes before they were required.

Currently, school meals offer students milk, fruits and vegetables, proteins and grains and they must meet strict limits on saturated fat and portion size. Starting in School Year 2012-2013, school lunches met additional standards requiring:

  • Students to have ½ cup of fruit and/or vegetables on their tray for it count as a full meal.
  • A wider variety of vegetables, including dark green and red/orange vegetables and legumes are required.
  • More whole grains.
  • Separate age-appropriate calorie limits for 3 grade groups; K-5th, 6th - 8th and 9th - 12th.
  • Fat-free or 1% milk.
  • Less sodium.

We’re always working to offer our students healthier and tastier choices. Please look for our healthier new menus including fruits and vegetables grown from school gardens and new chef-tested home cooked recipes. You can help our efforts by encouraging your children to try new things at home and at school. Also consider joining your student for lunch or breakfast to see what is new.

Please see menu carb counts for the primary, secondary and high school grade levels carbohydrate counts for both breakfast and lunch meals.
