Colorado Healthy Beverages and Competitive Food Policies

According to the Colorado Competitive Food Service Policy (2202-R-201.00), “competitive food service” is any food or beverage sold to students that is separate from the district’s nonprofit, federally reimbursed food service program, and is provided by a school-approved organization or by a school-approved outside vendor. All competitive foods must meet the USDA’s Smart Snacks regulation during specified times. This resource explains when all food sold in schools must comply with the Smart Snacks regulation, including fundraisers.
