Your child’s name appears on the date when it is your turn. Check the schedule at the bottom of the page for the upcoming schedule.

 

If you forget to bring snack on your child’s scheduled day, please provide some non-perishable or frozen items for the school’s emergency snack supply.

 

Snack Ideas

Please include 2 to 4 food group foods in your snack from Canada’s Food Guide (Vegetables and Fruit, Grain Products, Milk and Alternatives, and Meat and Alternatives).

 

Start with one fresh fruit and one vegetable (example: 10-12 apples, 3 to 4 cups of vegetables).

e.g. apples, pears, oranges, bananas, bell peppers, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower (whole or sliced at home), grapes, snap peas, mushrooms, mini tomatoes, edamame.

 

Add one or two other foods (25 small portions—one for each child):

  • Whole grain sandwiches, wraps, tortillas, english muffins, crackers, pita, bagels.
  • Filling ideas: sunflower seed butter or almond butter with sliced banana or jam, hummus, mozzarella or cheddar cheese.
  • Homemade muffins, bars or breads/loaves
  • Cheese (cut from a block, not individually packaged)
  • Milk or yogurt (in a big container/jug or tub, not individual containers)
  • Trailmix (e.g. toasted sunflower seeds/pumpkin seeds, raisins/dried cranberries, whole grain cereal)
  • Dip for veggies, bread, crackers (eg. white bean or hummus, homemade yogurt dip etc.)
  • Roasted chickpeas

 

Here are a few of our favourite recipe ideas here:

Yummy Yam Energy Balls (served with milk)

Easy Creamy Hummus (served with baby carrots, snap peas and whole wheat pita)

Pumpkin Muffin Bars (served with sliced apples and pear)

 

Snack Guidelines

  • There are 25 children in each class. If you have any questions regarding portion sizes, please do not hesitate to talk to a staff member.
  • It is not necessary to send in a beverage but if you do, please send only plain milk or unsweetened fortified soy drink in a large container/jug.
  • Ensure the children have the exact same snack, as this helps to decrease conflicts.
  • Do not send in any sweets such as store-bought cakes, cookies or candies. However, if it is your child’s birthday you may send in a small sweet to help celebrate the occasion.
  • Do not send any pre-packaged foods. (examples: cheese strings, yogurt tubes, granola bars, individual yogurts, mini gos, fruit cups, pepperoni sticks). If you’re short on time, you can send a block of cheese, whole fruit, a tub of yogurt, an entire loaf etc., and we can do the cutting at CAMP.
  • Do not send in items that will stain or become too messy. We have group snack on a carpeted area of the classroom.
  • Do not send snacks that contain nuts or nut-based products. Community Montessori Preschool is a nut-free zone.
