Snacks and Beverages

Healthy snacks and beverages give youth the energy and nutrition they need to participate fully in programs and activities.  Our Healthy Eating 01 Tips and Guidance is a great place to learn more about how you can gather the information you need to serve healthy snacks, meals, and beverages. Once you've completed your assessment, finding the right snacks and beverages to serve at your program is a two part process.

Buy the Right Foods

Group Purchasing Organizations

Save time, money and gain more buying power by joining a Group Purchasing Organization (GPO). GPOs work with large groups of entities (hospitals, schools, day care centers, community centers, etc.) and use that collective buying power to secure lower prices on everything from snacks to office supplies.

Learn more about how your site can benefit from GPOs.
