New frontiers for new learning
Healthy Snack program
March 11, 2011Posted by on
We are pleased to announce the return of our School’s Healthy Snack Program.
Here are the details of the program:
When: Wednesday mornings at recess.
What: The following foods will be ordered based on the Ministry Healthy Food guidelines which stipulate school snacks must contain two of the four food groups:
March 23 – apple spice muffin + banana
March 30 – yogurt + sliced apples
April 6 – granola bar + cucumbers / carrots
April 13- morning glory muffin + oranges
The products are nut-free and we have attached the full ingredient list on the back of the notice going home today. Please let us know if you have any questions or if you would prefer your child not partake in the program.
Why: This is part of York Region’s Food for Learning Program which promotes healthy eating in schools. The funding for this program has been provided to our school to support this initiative.
How: Snacks will be delivered to our school each week and two school council volunteers will help sort and deliver the snacks to all the classrooms. All students will have the opportunity to take a snack and enjoy it before going outside for morning recess.
I recommend all families to examine the new guidelines as they will not only inform our work moving forward as a school but are good for all of us to consider when planning family meals.
Here’s to healthy living choices.
