Snacks for Preschool

It is important that the children be served a nutritious snack at preschool.  A snack is exactly that, not a gourmet meal, but something to tide them over until they return home. The snack should be in small portions and nutritionally sound.  If a child learns good eating habits at an early age, he/she will learn how to make good food choices when eating on his/her own.

Public Health rules require that the type of snack provided for the children must be recorded on a daily basis.  A calendar is posted in the classroom to record the snack.  PLEASE NOTE THAT NEW PUBLIC HEALTH RULES DEMAND THAT SNACKS BE SLICED AT THE SCHOOL. THIS ENSURES PROPER FOOD HANDLING AND REDUCES FOOD OUTBREAKS.

Info and Guiding Principles

Please do not bring BULK food as there may be possible contamination or cross-contamination and lack of labeling.  As a general principal, please avoid all store brand products as they occasionally change the underlying manufacturers which each have their own policy on labeling.  Please prepare food carefully and avoid cross-contamination when baking or preparing food.  Please READ LABELS as ingredients and/or manufacturing processes can change.

Birthdays/Special Days

We understand everyone would like to celebrate their special day with their friends.  However, due to a variety of allergies, we request that you please refrain from bringing in a birthday cake, cupcakes, etc. and follow the menu suggested below.
