Thanks for The Snacks, But….

 

Hi Moms & Dads!

Firstly, I’d like to send out a special “Thank you!” to our parents for sending along extra snacks for the children to share at the end of the day, and everyone has certainly enjoyed the generosity.

However, we would like to ask that you please avoid sending in high sugar items, such as crisps, chips, biscuits and cookies for the children as it is important to us to encourage healthy eating habits here at school.

As always, thanks for your help in teaching the children about good nutrition and below is a list of approved healthy snacks that we would love to see if you feel like sharing.

You many want to “clip and post” this list to your refrigerator:

  1. Please remember it is a choice to have a late afternoon snack, and the children are not required to bring one. However, if you would like to send in extra snacks for the end of the day then please supply only a single day’s portion each day.
  2. Food ideas:
  • Fruit that can be eaten easily such as raisins, apples, grapes or orange slices (Please no fruits that require utensils, peeling, etc.)
  • String Cheese
  • Cheese Squares
  • Crackers
  • Fresh Vegetables
  • Dry Cereal
  • Rice Cakes
  • Non-chocolate Granola Bars
  • Yogurt cups
  1. No refined sugar or chocolate items such as cake, cupcakes, donuts, brownies, etc.
  2. Finger foods only please – Do not include snacks that require spoon, forks, or other utensils.
  3. “Healthy Snack” is to be eaten during morning and afternoon break.

Thank you once again and let’s get our “Healthy snacking” going in the right direction!
