The South Mesa Healthy School Council in Colorado faced a sticky problem: every day there was an invasion of junk food. Many students were bringing snacks to school that were loaded with sugar, corn syrup, and fat. Teachers and administrators were also bringing in many of the same unhealthy snacks for school functions and parties.

To encourage healthy behavior, the Healthy School Council developed the South Mesa Healthy Snacks List, a menu of suggested healthy alternatives to sugary and fat-laden foods. Every student and their family received a copy of the Healthy Snacks List. In fact, it has served as a stepping stone to healthy eating for the entire school community: school birthday celebrations and holiday parties all now follow the list to encourage healthier eating.
