Healthy Snack Program
At IE, serving healthy snacks to children is important. We want to encourage healthy eating habits. IE offers a healthy snack program where each child brings in and shares a healthy snack with his/her class. This program promotes sharing, which encourages empathy and teaches children about compromise. IE healthy snack program is also a great opportunity to take your child to the supermarket and pick out a healthy snack to share and talk about the benefits to the body. We also have “Try Friday” where we introduce a fruit or vegetable to the children. We encourage children to try new food.
