Healthy School Stores and Vending


    The Alliance for a Healthier Generation (AHG) offers a listing of products that meet the USDA smart snack standards, along with additional resources on their web page. They've also designed this SUPER useful calculator to help schools know if the foods they sell meet the Smart Snack guidelines. They also work with Amazon to offer a special Healthier Generation Store that sells Smart Snack compliant items.

    The Childhood Obesity Prevention Coalition is a Seattle based group that put together a really great list of resources to help anyone that is trying to develop healthier vending machines. The resources from King County are particularly helpful!

    Eat Smart, Move More NC has two great handouts about healthy vending machines and school stores. Both of these list plenty examples of healthy options and how to implement them in vending machines or in school stores.
