Have a nutritious snack ready for your child after school

No matter how well a child eats at breakfast and lunch they will most likely be hungry after school. Some families eat dinner when kids arrive home from school, but many families don't eat until two or three hours after school is out. If your child needs an after-school snack, try to:

  1. Find the right-sized snack to help them come to dinner hungry, but not starving. Hungry children are more likely to try new foods, but if they are overly hungry, they are more inclined to eat very quickly and possibly overeat. If they come to the table full from eating a meal-sized afternoon snack, they will not want to eat their meal, or they might eat it anyway and feel stuffed.
  2. Offer a snack like an apple with a tablespoon of peanut butter, or a cup of 54 Apple And Peanut Butter Illustrations & Clip Art - iStockyogurt, a healthy granola bar or cheese and whole-grain crackers. These types of snacks should be enough to satiate their hunger without spoiling their appetite for dinner.

MEDICATION REMINDERS:

  • Any medications to be given at school need to have an order from a licensed provider. There are medication forms available in the school office.
  • Medications must be brought to the school by a responsible adult...not sent to the school with the student. The adult must bring the medicine to the school nurse or the office staff.
