Healthy Classroom Celebrations

Students learn what they live so let's create healthy environments for our students!


Did you know? Robla School District has a classroom celebration policy that requires that ALL food and beverages offered or served to students during the school day must meet or exceed the federal nutrition standards known as USDA Smart Snacks in Schools. This includes any food or beverage item that is a part of birthday celebrations, classroom parties, and rewards used during the school day.


       Why create this policy?

  1. Healthy Kids Learn Better: Research clearly demonstrates that good nutrition is linked to better behavior and academic performance.
  2. Provides Consistent Messages: Providing healthy classroom celebrations demonstrates a school commitment to promoting healthy environments for students to learn. It supports the classroom lessons students are learning about health, instead of contradicting them.
  3. Puts Food in Its Proper Place: Refreshments should complement the fun, not be the “main event.”
