Snacks

Clip to ScrapBook #16

We have a late lunch, so my students work better if they have a midmorning snack. I have one student (special ed classroom) who is on pureed foods. Due to his past history (long story), he was on a bottle until he was 8 years old. There was no such thing as baby food and there was no way to puree regular foods for him. We found out he likes pureed bananas, so one of my paras has been purchasing them for him. I'm going to go buy a case this weekend. The parents send a lunch with him (not pureed) and we get a pureed lunch for him. He hates it. I also buy cold cereal that the kids can have as finger foods. 2 of my students do have parents who send snacks, which is really nice. I guess, in the scheme of things, if I'm not feeding them all a full meal every day, then it's something I don't mind doing. Should I have to do it? No. I do it because it helps the class run more smoothly.
