We appreciate your assistance in helping us to provide nutritious snacks for the children. Snacking makes up an important part of childhood nutrition, so the food you provide should reflect a conscientious effort on your part to help the children meet their high energy needs through healthy snack experiences.
Plan to provide a snack that includes a serving from either the fruit or vegetable group and a serving from the bread/cereal group, the dairy group, or the meat/protein group. Child-size servings are generally considered to be 1/4 to 1/3 the size of an adult serving.
Be sure that your snack is ready to serve and delivered to the classroom or refrigerator/freezer by 9 am. Mark bags or containers with your child's name so that we can make sure the snack gets to the right classroom.
The preschool provides cups, napkins, and spoons.
