Nutrition Calculator

Smart Snacks Calculator

Foods sold, served or distributed outside of the school cafeteria must meet the nutrient requirements for West Virginia schools. This includes foods sold in vending machines and school stores, served during classroom parties, and provided by parents for snacks. The West Virginia Board of Education enacted rules for these "other foods" for three reasons:

  • Snacks can help your child's meet their nutrition needs instead of adding unnecessary (and unhealthy) fat, sugar and salt;
  • Food safety concerns; and
  • Allergies and/or special diets required by some children.

To learn if a food item meets the guidelines, simply type the number of calories, grams, or milligrams directly from the food label into the label calculator below. You must have the Nutrition Facts panel from the food item to do this. Note: Some foods are allowable even though they may exceed the nutrient guidelines. These are nuts and seeds, yogurt and 100% fruit juices.

Remember, each food item must:

  • Have a Nutrition Facts panel and ingredient list
  • Be less than 200 calories per serving
  • Be commercially packaged
