Healthy Snacks for School
pdf
printable version
Providing healthy snacks for children helps them grow and develop and supports life-long good eating habits. Serving nutritious snacks as part of a healthy diet can help prevent disabling diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and obesity. Just as important as serving healthy food items, is serving the right portion. Make sure a snack is a snack small and satisfying. Please avoid sending foods of poor nutritional quality such as cookies, cakes, pastries, candies, fruit roll-ups, ice cream, chips, sodas, and other sweetened drinks.

Following are just a few ideas of healthy snacks and drinks for you to bring to school when it's your turn to provide refreshments for the classroom, parties, birthday treats, and other school activities. If you have questions or other snack ideas, please contact your child's teacher.

  • Fresh Fruit
  • String Cheese
  • Fresh Vegetables
  • Graham Crackers (2)
  • Fruit Juice Bars (w/real fruit)
  • Vanilla Wafers (5)
  • Dried Fruit (low sugar)
  • Whole Grain Crackers
  • Light Yogurt
  • Pretzels
  • Light Popcorn
  • Unsweetened Fruit Cups
  • Celery with Peanut Butter
  • Whole Grain, Low Sugar Dry Cereals
  • Low Fat Cheese
  • Whole Grain, Low Sugar Granola Bars
  • Low-Fat Cottage Cheese Cups
  • Mini Bagels with Fruit Spread
  • Trail Mix (low salt, no candy)

  • Finger Sandwiches
  • Turkey and Cheese Rolls
  • 100% Fruit Juice (6 ounces)
  • 100% Vegetable Juice (6 ounces)
  • Bottled Water

Let your child help you prepare these nutritious options and experiment with their creativity. For example, how about Fresh Fruit Kabobs, String Cheese Stuffed Celery, Cookie Cutter Sandwiches, or Cheese Cubes on a Pretzel Stick? Show your child that healthy snacks can be fun and tasty.

Before sending any food to school, please check with your child's teacher(s) to make sure there are not classmates with food allergies.

Visitor/Volunteer Policy
Visitors are to check in at the main office. When a visitor checks in at the office the office staff will make a determination if the visitor is a volunteer or visitor. A volunteer will be issued a one type of name tag and a visitor will be issued another type of name tag.

In addition our staff is all required to wear a photo identification card. Our substitute teachers also are required to wear a certain type of name tag. This policy includes those individuals that are attending a field trip with our students. If a person is going to attend a field trip they need to first check in at our office. All of these measures are to help keep our school as safe as possible. Thanks for your cooperation
