Texas Public School Nutrition Policy 
More than 35 percent of Texas children are considered overweight or obese, which is significantly higher than the nation as a whole. Our schools are in a powerful position to influence children, which is why the Texas Department of Agriculture created the Texas Public School Nutrition Policy. These nutrition guidelines are a result of a collaborative effort among parents, school administrators, health professionals and members of the food industry. Its purpose? To promote a healthier environment in Texas schools and help ensure a healthier future for Texas children. Klein ISD Food Service Department follows the guidelines set by the Texas Public School Nutrition Policy.

Q & A
ALWAYS BE AWARE OF FOOD ALLERGIES. YOU NEVER KNOW WHEN A PERSON MAY BECOME ALLERGIC TO SOMETHING THAT NEVER CAUSED SERIOUS PROBLEMS BEFORE BUT NOW IS DEADLY.

Q) Can I give my students "food" for doing a great job on the exam?
A) No, we cannot use food as a reward.

Q) Can we still use "food" to enhance a lesson? For example, can I use M&M's in a math lesson or a science lab, or bring in ethnic food to complement a social studies class?

A) Yes, food may be used to enhance a lesson, but the food must not be listed on the Food of Minimal Nutritional Value.

Q) Can food be used as a motivator or reward with special education students?
A) Yes, if the food is part of the students' IEP.

Q) Can the nurse use "food" with students?
A) Yes, the nurse may use any food in a medicinal manner.

Is there a list of "nutritious snacks" that elementary teachers are authorized to provide to their students?


TDA has produced, posted on the squaremeals.org Web site and widely distributed its brochure, www.squaremeals.org/Portals/8/files/publications/Nutritious%20Snack%20Broch2.pdf but it is not intended to be a comprehensive list. TDA has not specified what qualifies as a nutritious snack other than that it must meet the Nutrition Standards specified in the TPSNP. Generally, a snack would be considered nutritious if it is less than 200 calories, is less than 30 percent fat, is high in protein and is high in vitamins and minerals.
