Our school’s healthy snack program has been up and running for several weeks now and we thank our staff & students who have organised it. Now, we would like to share a resource for your family called Serve It Up! This is an online, and interactive, recipe book that you can use as a family. All of the recipes comply with the nutrition standards in Ontario’s School Food and Beverage Policy. The upcoming Winter Break is a great time for your family to try some new recipes together. Cooking is a wonderful way to connect as a family, promote both literacy and numeracy and foster healthy living choices. We hope this Ministry of Education Resource is helpful for you and your family.

We’re excited to announce the return of our school’s Healthy Snack Program. We were pleased with last year’s results and are grateful to the team of staff members – Ms Kim, Ms Massaro, Ms McKenzie, Ms Worrall and Ms Aternino – who have helped planned this year’s program. This is a free, universal program open to any student who chooses to participate. All items provided align to the Healthy Food Guidelines developed by the Ministry of Education. We are aiming to launch the program next Wednesday November 13, 2013.
When: Wednesday mornings at 10:25 a.m. (morning snack recess).
What: The foods will be ordered based on the Ministry Healthy Food guidelines. The program provides healthy snacks to students.
Our focus for November will be apples and fruits.
If you would prefer that your child not participate please let your child’s teacher know.
