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 at least 2 to 3 foods found in Canada’s Food Guide (vegetables and fruit, protein foods, whole grain foods)

Start with at least one fruit or 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 foods with grains and protein (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 (in a big container/jug, not individual containers)
  • Trailmix (e.g. toasted sunflower seeds/pumpkin seeds, raisins/dried cranberries, whole grain cereal)
  • Dip for veggies, bread, crackers (eg. black bean or hummus, homemade yogurt dip etc.)
  • Roasted chickpeas

A few snack ideas

(Smashed) Bean Dip or Dilly Dip (served with baby carrots,  sliced apple, and whole wheat pita)

Energy Balls (served with orange slices and edamame)

Pumpkin Muffin Bars (served with sliced pear and snap peas)

Mini pizzas (served with cucumber slices)

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 sweet such as mini cupcakes 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, 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 peanut and nut-based products. Community Montessori Preschool is a peanut and nut-free zone.

Thank you for supporting our snack program!
