What: Nutrition guidelines for all foods and beverages that can be sold to students
This includes fundraisers, vending machines, school stores, and cafeteria snack bars
When: During the school day
(School day is midnight the night before, to 30 minutes after the last bell)
Where: All areas of campus that students are on during the day
Why: The new nationwide regulations are an effort to make school campuses healthier environments for all students.
