Would you mind sharing your snack letter that you send home to parents. I'm looking for some wording about small healthy snacks. Thanks

As a special education resource room, I have not provided snack for my kids, but I know a friend of mine sends home a breif letter (sorry I do not have a copy), and also a little note after the student brings snack in that says, "Thank you for the HEALTHY snack!"--which I think is a great positive reinforcer.

Maybe you could include examples or pictures of appropriate healthy snacks in you letter?

I have something about snack that I write in my parent handout:

"Healthy snacks can help boost a child's mental and physical skills. For this reason, we have snack every morning at approximately 10:30. I encourage parents to send their child to school with a small, healthy snack each day. Our snack time is supposed to last no longer than 15 minutes, so snacks should be small enough to eat in that time period; one thing to eat is all that is necessary. Please send spoons or spreading utensils with your child's snack if needed.

It is the goal of ____________ School is to teach students healthy eating habits. With this goal in mind, the following is a list of acceptable morning snacks:

• Crackers
• Pretzels
• Fruit and/or vegetables
• Yogurt or pudding
• Granola bars
• Cereal
• Popcorn
• Rice Cakes
• Applesauce
• 100 calorie packs
• String cheese
• Mini-muffins
• Raisins
• Bagels
•

Please note that chips, cookies, cakes, etc are not permitted as snacks. Students may bring milk or water to drink if they would like. As teachers, we have found that the high levels of sugars in fruit juices and sugary snacks make students excitable and unfocused. For this reason, we ask that your children bring either water or milk (not juice) if they’d like a drink with their snacks. The first grade greatly appreciates your understanding and assistance in helping _________ School and our first grade class meet our nutrition goals."

I love this, Nicki2482. I am doing individual snacks for the first time this year and this is a perfect way to inform the parents. I've always had families send in boxes of snacks for the whole class in previous years, but I grew tired of the same families donating all of the time. Thanks for sharing!

I got this from a team mate. It says "we" due to team teaching, so if you are by yourself you'll want to change it. Hope it helps!
