The Laboratory Preschool provides a daily snack in all programs. We encourage children to eat a variety of healthy foods by planning snacks and cooking projects. Teachers model healthy eating habits by sitting with children and enjoying snack time together.
In compliance with the Office of Child Care Licensing regulations, each snack will contain at least one item from two of the following food groups:
- Dairy products such as milk, cheese and yogurt
- Protein such as cheese or beans
- Fruits and vegetables
- Grains such as whole wheat crackers, cereal, bread.
Families must notify teachers, in writing, about any food allergies or dietary restrictions. We will work with families to ensure that daily snacks are safe for each child.
Snack menus are posted weekly in each classroom.
