It is here! The New Snowie Flavor Nutritional Additive that we created to comply with the Smart Snacks in School program. We are calling it “Snowie Smart Syrups.”
The Smart Snacks in School Program is something that the Obama Administration put into place in order to help control the type of snacks that are being introduced at our Schools. They have created standards that force companies, like ourselves, to add some additional nutritional value to the product that we sell in School.
So staying true to our traditions, whenever we set out to do something at Snowie, we do not ever approach it to just get by or simply comply. It is always our goal to do it right the first time. So we take our time, think it through, and create a product that is truly worth its praise.
Nutrition Standards for ANY food sold in schools must:
- Be a “whole grain-rich” grain product; or
- Have as the first ingredient a fruit, a vegetable, a dairy product, or a protein food; or
- Be a combination food that contains at least ¼ cup of fruit and/or vegetable; or
- Contain 10% of the Daily Value (DV) of one of the nutrients of public health concern in the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans (calcium, potassium, vitamin D, or dietary fiber).*
Snowie’s Additive Contains 10% of the Daily Value of 3 important nutrients that are better for you when taken together. The requirement calls for only one. We’ve chosen to make a difference by going above and beyond, not just meet the minimum requirements.
What’s In It?
ONE PACKET CONTAINS: CALCIUM, MAGNESIUM, VITAMIN D
So to summarize, what the government requested of us, was to include 10% of the Daily Value (DV) of one of the nutrients of public health concern in the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans (calcium, potassium, vitamin D, or dietary fiber).
But instead of using one or the other in this scenario, we did some research and found that you are far better off when taking Calcium with Vitamin D and Magnesium. So if this is the case, then why not add all 3?
So that is exactly what we have done.
When Can I Buy?
