Daily Compliance Item- 10/8/14- 16.5.2- Nutritional Supplements

Ocean State University has set up a refueling station in its main athletic training room to provide healthy snacks to the student-athletes throughout the day.  Some of the items available are supplements that contain impermissible banned substances.  Is it okay to provide these supplements as a snack per the new legislation?
No.  NCAA Staff Interpretation- 10/8/14- Nutritional Supplements (I)-states that it is not permissible to provide a nutritional supplement that is not otherwise permissible by characterizing it as a snack or a meal incidental to participation.
