Nutrition Standards for Foods Sold in Schools

Standards for All Foods Sold in Schools


The Child Nutrition and WIC Reauthorization Act of 2004 required sponsors to implement local school wellness policies. KSDE developed a prototype local wellness policy in collaboration with a variety of stakeholders from across the state. Sponsors can adopt the prototype policy as provided or modify it so suit local needs. KSDE will continue to provide training and technical assistance on implementing local wellness policies.


Competitive Foods

  • Sponsors must establish policies and procedures to control the sale of foods in competition with meals served under the National School Lunch and School Breakfast programs.
  • Sponsors must prohibit private business enterprises from soliciting, selling, or delivering food or drink items on school property in competition with the nonprofit food service program.
  • Proceeds from the sale of all competitive foods must accrue to the Food Service Fund, to the school, or to an approved student organization
