In order to respond to the current obesity epidemic and to improve in the areas of nutrition, physical fitness, and nutrition education, the Board of Regents of the prelacy Armenian school has decided the following:

A) The only food, excluding beverages, authorized to serve or for sale at the Prelacy schools (including but not limited to, the student store, vending machines, a la carte sales, and fundraising) before, during, and until one half hour after the end of school day at all Prelacy schools accessible to the students shall meet the following nutrient standards:

  • No more than 35% of total calories from fat (excluding nuts and seeds)
  • No more than 10% of total calories from saturated fat, including trans fat
  • No more than 35% added sugar by weight (excluding fruits, vegetables, when used as additives)
  • No more than 600 mg of sodium per serving

B) Adopts the following serving portion sizes for all foods, excluding beverages:

  • Snacks and sweets (including, but not limited to chips, crackers, popcorn, cereal, trail mix, nuts, seeds, dried fruits, jerky): 1.5 oz
  • Cookies/cereal bars: 2 oz
  • Bakery Items (e.g. pastries, muffins): 3 oz
  • Frozen desserts, ice cream: 3 oz
  • Other entrée items and side dishes (including, but not limited to, French fries, onion rings) shall be no larger than the portions of those foods served.

C) Directs the Principals and Preschool Directors to provide at least one vegetarian option that includes vegetable or fruit component;

D) Directs the Principals and Preschool Directors to increase variety, visibility, and accessibility of fresh fruit and vegetables at school sites through facility design,

E) Directs the Principals and Preschool Directors to improve and broaden nutrition education materials within the K-12, and parents;

F) Sets as policy the concept that cafeterias should be places of learning and therefore should provide informational posters and nutrition and nutrient information about all items served in cafeterias;

G) Directs the Principals and Preschool Directors to develop guidelines to eliminate fast-food products (defined as companies primarily marketing high-fat, high calorie, and high sugar foods);

H) Direct the Principals and Preschool Directors to work with organizations such as American Diabetes Association on education programs to be offered at school sites teaching healthy eating and lifestyle habits.
