Healthy Snack and Celebration Guidelines
Granby Elementary is implementing Healthy Snack & Celebration Guidelines to limit the amount of unhealthy food our students consume during snacks and classroom celebrations. This school policy follows our district’s Wellness Policy and is a great way to make Granby Elementary a healthy place for students, staff and families.
Teachers will coordinate with their students to determine the schedule in their classroom for celebrations, whether it will be student’s birthdays, special week or a special classroom reward. Please let your child’s teacher know if you are interested in coordinating the parties. These are healthy celebrations, so we will celebrate the occasions with healthy, delicious foods as well as enjoying non-food activities. Please refrain from sending cupcakes or cookies. Some healthier alternatives are listed below:
Fruit and veggie kabobs
Yogurt parfaits (yogurt, granola and fruit)
Bugs on a log (celery with cream cheese or peanut butter* with raisins or dried cranberries)
Fruit or vegetable muffins (banana, apple, zucchini, carrot)
Cheese and Whole Grain Crackers
nuts/raisin/sunflower seed/coconut/chopped dates mix
breakfast food: oatmeal or low sugar yogurt with toppings; quiches
sliced veggies and ranch dressing or hummus
