Emanuel is working towards teaching and encouraging nutritious eating habits in children. We would like parents to provide healthy and nutritious lunches and snacks for your child to eat while they attend Emanuel.
The following is a guide to help you make healthy choices. Nutrition at Emanuel
EXCEPTION: Of course, birthdays are the exception!!! During birthday celebrations we welcome any peanut free special treat to share with the class.
UNHEALTHY SNACKS: If refined sugar is one of the first 3 ingredients (corn syrup, glucose, etc) then it is not a good choice to bring to school. Nutrition at Emanuel
HEALTHY SNACKS: Natural Sugars (Fresh Fruit) or pretzels, goldfish, crackers. Nutrition at Emanuel
LUNCH: Lunch should consist of Lunch/Snack/Drink. Students must also be able to handle their own lunch and snack. Teachers will not have time to peel oranges, slice apples or heat food. NO CANDY OF ANY KIND PLEASE!
We offer to our full day students and our morning AM students Pizza from Rocco’s Pizza on Wednesdays at a price of $3.00 per lunch.
SNACKS: Your child will need an AM snack and drink and PM snack and drink. Please pack snacks separately from lunch in a brown bag or Ziploc bag or separate lunch box marked SNACK. This makes snack time easier. Emanuel will provide water for snack time if desired.
