Shreve Island strives to educate our students in all areas of their lives so that they can grow up to be happy and healthy adults. With this in mind, Shreve Island will be implementing new snack recommendations beginning after Labor Day. We are excited to model healthy eating habits through the snacks our students are provided while they are at school. For more information, please read below or go the school website. The school will also be sending a sheet home with details and snack ideas. I ask that you lend your support to this exciting endeavor.

Snack Recommendations

In an effort to meet the USDA’s Smart Snacks in School nutritional standards, we are asking parents to be more conscious of the snacks sent from home to Shreve Island Elementary. We want to increase the presence of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains in our students’ snacks throughout the school year. Some examples of acceptable items are:


Baked Chips

Nabisco 100 Calorie Pack - Ritz Snack Mix

Stacy's Pita Chips

Fresh fruit (i.e. bananas, apples, Cuties)

Fresh veggies (i.e. carrot sticks)

Kellogg's Nutri-Grain Soft Baked Breakfast Bars Strawberry

Quaker 25% Less Sugar Chewy Granola Bars

Keebler Elf Grahams - Original

Keebler Scooby-Doo!™ Graham Cracker Sticks

Rold Gold® Pretzels


YOU ARE NOT LIMITED TO THESE ITEMS. YOU MAY BRING OTHER HEALTHY SNACK ITEMS AS WELL.
