In order to give you some idea of quantities of snack, here is what the children had last week for snacks:
Tuesday:  1/2 of a watermelon (sliced)
                  1 red pepper (cut up) and 1/2 bag of small carrots

Wednesday:  a bunch of green grapes  
                      10 grannie smith apples (sliced)  

                  We have an apple slicer so I can quickly cut up apples right before snack.

Thursday: 1 banana per child
                   1 red peppers (cut up), 1/2 bag of carrots, 1 cucumber  (sliced)  

              FYI the pepper was the most popular.  No children ate the cucumbers
Friday: 10 fuji apples (sliced)

             1/2 of peach per child

Just as a reminder:
At Summers-Knoll, the children have lunch and two snacks, everyday.  Lunch and snacks are an important part of the day.   Healthy food through out the day help sustain healthy minds and bodies.

In the past, the familes in my class have taken turns providing snacks for the class. Currently, there are 14 children in the class, which means each family brings snacks approximately 3 times a year.  I will provide snacks the first week of school.  After that it will make a list assigning each family a week.  (If for some reason this system will not work for you, please let me know.) 

What should you bring and not bring:
When it is your turn to provide snacks, please keep in mind:

SK is a "NO NUTS" school. Please remember to check for peanuts and tree nuts, in lunch and food items. Also, check labels for transfat and high fructose corn syrup and avoid those foods whenever possible.

Besides nuts, there are several other allergies in the class: 

eggs, dairy, and kiwis.

Therefore, fruit and vegetables are great snacks.  

Here are some snack suggestions:
      -fresh fruit
      -dried fruit
 -fresh vegetables
 -apple sauce
     -rice cakes
If you have questions about if a particular snack is appropriate, please don't hesitate to ask.
