ALLERGY WARNING: This  year we have a student who is severely allergic to peanuts and all nuts.  Please be considerate when planning snack: NO PEANUT BUTTER,
 Please send snacks for 10 children, divided and prepared in individual portions.  Fore example, fruit or cheese should be cut into small pieces, placed in a zip lock bag or other disposable container.

Small, simple snacks work well.  One item is usually not enough to fill up a growing preschooler.  Usually 2-3 items and a juice drink are best.  Something sweet and salty is always a good combination.  There is a list of snack ideas at the end of this page. 

CUPCAKES ARE FORBIDDEN except for birthdays. 

Please bring juice, milk, chocolate milk, or water to drink  Usually 1-2 quarts is plenty.  I have small cups, if you would like to send a disposable container. Drink boxes and small waters work well. 

Remember to keep it simple and bring something that is a favorite of your child! These are just a few ideas:
  • string cheese, mini-box of raisins, graham crackers
  • ½ sandwich, chips, fruit snack
  • Pretzels or crackers, cheese cubes, fruit
  • Popcorn, apple slices, cookie
  • Muffin, small bunch of grapes 
  • ½ granola bar and fresh fruit
  • Oreos/graham crackers, milk, ½ banana
  • Animal crackers with frosting for dipping
  • Baby carrots with ranch dressing for dipping
  • Crackers or breadsticks with cheese to spread
  • Crackers, small cheese squares, small ham or turkey squares and a small cookie or fruit snack
  • Chocolate milk with min-donuts/donut holes, fruit
  • Pudding with graham crackers or animal crackers to dip
  • It’s also fun to make your own "trail mix" with 3-4 items you have in your pantry.  Some ideas are: gold fish crackers, popcorn, m&m's, jelly beans or skittles, animal cookies, pretzels, sweetened cereal, marshmallows, dried fruits, raisins, fruit snacks, etc
