Parents must ensure that their child's lunch is nut free, nutritious and meets the guidelines of the new Canadas Food Guide. Lunches should include items from each of the food groups plus 1 extra fruit or vegetable. A few examples of recommended food items are: whole grains, proteins and plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables.
Please do not include foods which are low in nutritional value and/or high in sugar content such as:
POTATO CHIPS, SODA POP, CANDY, CHOCOLATE BARS, HIGH SUGAR DRINKS/PUNCHES
Please check food labels before sending lunches. It is important that lunches are nut free
✓ Lunch containers and lunch bag must be labelled with the child's name.
✓ Food allergy lists are posted in the room where the lunch program takes place. We ask parents to keep us updated in writing regarding your child's food allergies.
✓ No food items are provided by the lunch program unless a child has forgotten his/her lunch or the lunch contents are low nutritional value and/or high sugar content. We will have on hand sandwiches, fruit, vegetables, and juice in this event.
