The West Des Moines Community Schools is making student health and wellness a top priority. To help guide the district in this effort, the West Des Moines Community Schools Board of Education recently approved revisions to the district’s wellness policy (Policy 608.01).

These changes focus on districtwide health initiatives, including:

  • providing access to healthy nutritional food and beverage options for all activities within the school day.

  • fostering daily physical activity that embraces a healthy lifestyle.

Snack Lists

The following snacks lists are to reference when selecting snacks for activities during the school day and up to 30 minutes after the last bell.

Note: These lists are not required for a student’s personal lunch or snack.
