    Healthy Celebrations for the Holidays

    Help your students make healthy choices this holiday season! If your classroom or school will be having a holiday celebration, try to substitute sugary desserts with healthier options to help make sure students have access to healthy food and beverages at school. Bonus points if your holiday treats meet the OUSD Food Guidelines for healthy snack alternatives!
