Healthy Snacks

​This page has information about the snacks we provide your child during the day. We have a snack table where your child can sit with their friends and eat a healthy snack. Your child will be shown how to collect a plate and a cup and take food that has been prepared, for example chopped fruit, small portion of pita bread, cucumber slices. The preparation of the food is an activity in itself. Each day the teacher on snack table duty will invite a couple of children to sit with her and prepare the food for the class. Your child will be encouraged to use a knife, fork and spoon. Sitting with a teacher and their friends, the teacher will talk to them about their snack. If necessary the teacher remind them of any rules they may have forgotten, such as washing their hands before they eat, pushing their chair in when they leave the table and washing their plate and cup when they are finished.
