Wellness Comments

Overview

Nevada’s School Wellness Policy was based on and developed using USDA’s Smart Snacks Nutrition Standards for all Foods Sold in Schools, Interim Final Rule and the Local School Wellness Policy Implementation, Proposed Rule as required by the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. These federal standards are subject to change. As changes are made, Nevada’s School Wellness Policy will be updated to comply with the federal minimum requirements. A broad group of stakeholders was brought together in the spring of 2014 to revise the policy and a Best Practices Manual was created to aid school districts in implementing the latest policy. Below are several school wellness policy resources. Additionally, if you have had a positive experience with your school's wellness policy please share it by leaving a comment on our comment portal which can be accessed here.
