The North Judson-San Pierre School board approved board policies this week. Among the many policies in place, the school’s wellness policy was updated to be compliant with federal law. It incorporates guidelines into the school’s cafeteria food, vending machines and physical activity practices.
Superintendent Lynn Johnson says the nutrition side of the policy has been part of their system for the past several years. She said snacks that go in the vending machines are called smart snacks and must have a lower sugar content than other unhealthy ones. Johnson says concessions sold after hours at sporting events and other activities do not fall under those guidelines. As a result, some foods not normally available during the school day can be sold.
