School Parties and Snacks


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.

Remember, each food item must:

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

For additional information and to determine if the snacks you want to bring to school meet state requirements, use the Nutrition Calculator on the West Virginia Office of Child Nutrition website.



Wellness CommitteeAnchor

The Webster County Board of Education Office Child Nutrition and Wellness wishes to extend an invitation to join our Wellness Committee.  Our Wellness Policy promotes the well-documented link between nutrition, physical activity, and learning.  It is the Wellness Committee’s role to help schools ensure students establish and maintain healthy eating and physical activity patterns that will last a lifetime.


The committee meets biannually to discuss important issues within our school system and serve as resources for implementing policies and procedures related to the health and fitness of students.  We always welcome new members, whether they are parents, students, school personnel, or other interested individuals within our community.  So please pass on the word and let us know if you are interested.


Please check back for our next scheduled meeting.
