Children this age are overwhelmed with a lot of choices, so please send two or three nutritional finger foods, e.g. carrot sticks, cheese cubes, crackers, grapes, sandwiches, apple slices, in reusable, easy to open containers. Include a cloth napkin. If it could spill all over your child, please don’t send it. Beverage: water, 100% juice, or milk in a reusable drink bottle with a screw cap or sports top. The lunch box should fit within a 5 ½ inch wide by 11 inch tall by 12 inch deep cubby space. DO NOT SEND candy, paper napkins, baggies, juice boxes, prepackaged sweetened flavored yogurt, prepackaged apple sauce, prepackaged fruit, or prepackaged cheese sticks to school. Consider the environment and help us reduce the amount of trash and uneaten food thrown away.
Snack – Toddlers
Parents of children in our toddler class pay an extra $25 per month to cover the cost of snack.
Snack – Preschool
We ask parents to bring snack for their child’s class ten times in the school year. Please schedule this with your child’s teacher. Parents may choose to pay $15 for each snack day to cover the cost of snacks and shopping. We love fresh, homemade, low sugar treats.
See the following suggestions, or create your own! Bring one item from each group. Plan on spending about $20 for each day’s snack.
1. Breads: Whole grain or home made bread, tortillas, pita or bagels (one loaf or package)
2. Fruits or Vegetables: (2 lbs) apples, bananas, oranges, carrots, cucumbers
3. Protein: cheese (1 pound, in a block or cubed), hard boiled eggs, nuts, NO PEANUTS
