Healthy Snacks for School Celebrations

Classroom celebrations are an exciting time from children of all ages. We encourage children to try new and different things, including fun party activities and healthy snacks. School staff and parents need not worry that children will be disappointed if traditional party foods are not served in the classroom. Holiday treats and birthday parties with cake can still be available at home.  Providing healthy classroom celebrations enhance our school’s commitment to promoting healthy eating habits. It supports the classroom lessons students are learning about in nutrition and health as well.  Here are some healthy snack ideas to make your celebration a success.
