Snack Information

Snack Suggestions

Children bring their own snacks from home, and once per week, classrooms have group snack. Each family will be responsible for bringing a snack for their child’s class once or twice per school year and teachers will send out this schedule. 


Child care licensing requires that fruits and vegetables must be cut up at the school or be purchased at a commercial facility. Baked goods must be prepackaged or purchased at a commercial facility or baked at the school. Boxes of food, cartons of milk, etc. must be brought to the school unopened. The classrooms are meat and peanut-free environments. Please do not send any snack to the school that contains peanuts or peanut butter.


Please bring your snack the day before your child’s snack day. If you forget to bring snack on your day, please bring a snack that can be easily stored at school to be used on the next occasion when a snack is forgotten. Easily stored snacks include fruit canned in 100% juice, crackers, dried or frozen fruit, cereal, Fig Newtons, cheese sticks and Gogurt. Thank you.
