Healthy Snack Ideas

We are a nut free school!

Students will bring their own snacks, and when needed lunch, to school. Please label the snack containers with your child’s name. A good rule of thumb is to provide snacks that include 1 from each category- fiber, protein, and healthy fat. Here are a few examples :

  • Mini bagel with cream cheese and grapes
  • Pita wedges with hummus and string cheese
 
FiberProtein/Healthy Fat
PopcornString cheese or Babybel
Vegetables (carrots, celery, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, broccoli, cauliflower)Plain Whole fat yogurt – drizzle honey or add fruit for sweetness
Pretzels or GoldfishSunbutter
Graham crackersMixture of Seeds- sunflower, pumpkin
FruitHummus
Tortilla chips or pita wedgesHam or turkey and cheese rollup

Please provide a cold pack for your child’s snack if it needs to be chilled. Serving sizes for children are usually the size of their fist.
