Share On Social!

Not sure if a snack food for your school or afterscool program meets federal nutrition guidelines?

Check out the new Healthier Generation Store with Amazon Business, a first-of-its-kind online marketplace committed to selling products that align with the USDA Smart Snack in School Standards.

The store was created by the Alliance for a Healthier Generation.

“The Healthier Generation Store was created to provide schools and sites with an option that may help them more easily access products that meet nutritional guidelines,” according to the Alliance website. “[Store] products were determined to meet nutrition standards by the Alliance for a Healthier Generation based upon products’ ingredient statement and Nutrition Facts panel.”

The store aims to support schools and groups that serve healthier options to kids. This is especially important in the summer months as students are usually not enrolled in school.

We have a Middle School snack store and they have been ordering from the Healthier Generation Store with Amazon Business and love the ease and quick shipping – as well as not having to worry because they know all snacks are compliant. Plus, the kids seem to really like the snacks!

The store also can benefit workplaces by making it easier to serve healthier snacks that meet the Food Service Guidelines for Federal Facilities. This aims to support employee wellness, improve productivity, and save time.

“The HG Store is a simple way for organizations to locate and purchase items that fit nutritional guidelines – without membership fees and no matter where an organization is located within the US or what size of an order it needs to place,” said Anne Valik of the Alliance.

Importance to Latinos

Latino kids depend on school food for a healthy meal.

But Latino kids have more access than white kids to unhealthy foods and drinks in school stores, snack lines, and vending machines, according to a Salud America! Research Review.

This new resource will help Latino students access healthier food.

Check out other great Latino-benefiting initiatives the Alliance for a Healthier Generation has supported, including the creation of one of America’s healthiest schools.

Also, the Smart Snacks Product Calculator, which can be used to verify products for compliance with the Smart Snack nutrition standards.
