Healthy Snack Ideas


Students will bring their own snacks 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
  • Sunbutter crackers with hard boiled egg
Fiber  Protein/Healthy Fat
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 Gold fish Sunbutter
Graham crackers Mixture of Seeds- sunflower, pumpkin
Fruit Hummus
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.
