Dannon® is proud to work with a variety of quality organizations dedicated to promoting responsible eating choices for K–12 students.
Explore these organizations and their shared commitment to bringing health-centered menu options to our schools.
Alliance for a Healthier Generation
The Alliance was founded by the American Heart Association and the Clinton Foundation in response to the growing rate of childhood obesity. An industry searchable database of healthy products that meet federal requirements for breakfast, lunch and snacks is available to school food service operators.
Dannon products are included, assisting directors in creating healthier recipes and building menus that help in bringing systematic change to both industry and school districts. School foods that promote proper nutrition improve student behavior, performance and overall cognitive development.
Check the compliance of any K–12 food item with the AHG Smart Snacks Product Calculator tool.
