Your child needs to bring a snack everyday for preschool. We encourage you to provide a healthy snacks (Fruits, Veggie’s, Cheese etc) as these will provide them the needed energy & fuel for a good learning environment.
Fruits and vegetables are good sources of vitamins and minerals. Honey and sugar should only be included in a toddler’s diet in small amounts. Replace biscuits, cakes, chocolate and other sweets with snacks such as fruit and whole meal bread cut into interesting shapes.
As far as possible, avoid food with excessive refined or processed food. Go easy on Maida, processed cheese, etc.Try to limit juice to 4 to 6 ounces for your preschoolers. Dilute full strength juice if your preschooler drinks juice more than once a day so the total of full strength juice is 4 to 6 ounces.
Make sure to serve 100% fruit juice. No added sugar, syrup or any other synthetic ingredients.In a restaurant stick to your rules about no aerated drinks. Aerated drinks have no nutritional value but have several negative effects on children.
If your child has a food allergy please contact with your child’s teacher before the beginning of school years.
