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
|Popcorn||String cheese or Babybel|
|Vegetables (carrots, celery, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, broccoli, cauliflower)||Plain Whole fat yogurt – drizzle honey or add fruit for sweetness|
|Pretzels or Goldfish||Sunbutter|
|Graham crackers||Mixture of Seeds- sunflower, pumpkin|
|Tortilla chips or pita wedges||Ham or turkey and cheese rollup|
|Mini bagels||Cream cheese|
|Chex mix||Avocado / guacamole|
|Whole grain crackers||Edamame|
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.
