Each day, students
will have a nutrition/recess break in the morning. If you send a snack with
your child, package it separately from the lunch so the child will know which
is which, and not eat his/her lunch for a snack! Also, send nutritious snacks such as fruits,
veggies, crackers, peanut butter, cheese, yogurt, etc. and avoid sending chips,
cookies, treats, or other unhealthy items. Sodas, candy and gum are not permitted. Fried chips are not recommended. Research shows that students who have healthy
breakfasts and snacks have far more mental energy for studying and working than
those who eat sugary, non-nutritive foods.
Help your child by giving him/her healthy choices.
