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

  • Finger Sandwiches
  • Turkey and Cheese Rolls

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