Smart Snack Options

The Alliance for a Healthier Generation works to empower kids to develop lifelong healthy habits by ensuring the environments that surround them provide and promote good health.

Founded by the American Heart Association and Clinton Foundation, we are collaborative change-makers working to create a nation where children thrive. We empower people to transform the environments that can make a difference in a child’s health including homes, schools, doctor’s offices and communities.

The Institute of Medicine (IOM) Nutrition Standards for Food in Schools are suggested as voluntary guidelines and primarily affect school a la carte and vending choices. But those are not the only school food practices that contribute to childhood obesity. The IOM also recommends applying the nutrition standards to classroom parties and celebrations plus fundraising, rewards, and incentives for students. In addition, non-food alternatives may provide double benefits by limiting high calorie snacks AND increasing physical activity.
