Does your child's school allow snacks?

Do you provide them or the school?

What do they have for a snack (if applicable)

Yes, since she goes half day there is a snack time but no lunch.

I provide it, but she does have the option of buying milk at school.

I have been sending rice cakes and a fruit/veggie juice box. I also sent a few cherry tomatoes yesterday, and today some applesauce. I don't know how long their snacktime is so I've been trying to send something quick & simple that I know she likes.

Yes for Natalie. I need to provide it. I've sent fruit cups, granola bars, goldfish crackers.

Arianna says a few of her teachers said she can eat in her class.

They have a snack time at school also. The teachers tell us what to bring and the parents sign up for a few weeks throughout the year. The kids are responsible to make their own snack, so as the year progresses, the snack become more involved.

Does your child's school allow snacks? Yes they have a "nutrition break" in the AM for 10 minutes where they can go to the bathroom and eat a small snack if they brought one.

Do you provide them or the school? Parents must provide them if they choose to. The cafeteria is only open for lunch and breakfast and the teachers do not provide food.

What do they have for a snack (if applicable): I always pack something healthy. Some fruit, veggie, animal crackers, Activia yogurt, string cheese, something along those lines.

Does your child's school allow snacks? Yes - John Paul's teacher allows snacks for the first few weeks until they get used to the new schedule. Isis doesn't eat lunch until almost 1:30 so her teacher allows a daily snack around a more normal lunch time to tide them over.

Do you provide them or the school? John Paul's teacher provides his snacks, I provide Isis's.

What do they have for a snack (if applicable) John Paul's teacher tries to aim for fruits, veggies, etc. Healthy finger foods. Isis I usually pack a granola bar. We were given few options with most of them being bags of chips or bags of pretzels or whatever and I'd rather it have at least some nutritional value.

Our school is grade K-6. The K-3rd grades get a snack time in the day as their lunch is the later lunch period - 12:10pm

I provide the snack for Vanessa. Kaylee's grade doesn't have snack time.

Usually it's a cheese sticks or pretzels. Maybe grapes or carrots sticks depending.

Does your child's school allow snacks? Yes, Jay's class (K) has snack in the afternoon. Joe's does not.

Do you provide them or the school? Parents have to provide them but if someone doesn't bring one his teacher keeps little baggies full of cereal for them.

What do they have for a snack (if applicable) Jay usually takes a cereal bar or apple dippers, something like that.

Alisha gets a healthy snack a few days a week provided by the school. Parents aren't allowed to send snacks. Nor are they allowed to send any treats for the kids' birthdays.

Just curious, why can you not send in a snack for your own kid? I don't allow my child to eat school food, so would he just not be able to have a snack?

Does your child's school allow snacks? Yes, they have recess in the morning. They eat a snack, then can go outside to play for a little.

Do you provide them or the school? I do.

What do they have for a snack (if applicable) Whatever I have at the house. When I pack his lunch I usually make a sandwich, a drink, and 2 snacks. Maybe a box of raisins and some crackers and cheese or something.

What do they have for a snack (if applicable)...fruit, veggies, goldfish, pretzels and a water. I think I have the only kid on the planet that doesn't like juice boxes or flavored drinks.

Our school doesn't allow peanut butter in the classes that have kids allergic to peanuts. And my child happens to be one with the peanut allergy. So her class is one of the classes that doesn't allow peanuts and one parent made a HUGE stink of it. Sorry, I understand your child LOVES peanut butter, but my child's safety comes first.

I have mixed feelings on that as if they're going to do that why not say no to whatever food any child is allergic to? I have an allergy to celery and cranberries, yet went through my entire life in school and workplaces and such without having an issue as I learned from a young age not to eat them. I'm sure kids were allergic to peanuts when I was in school too, yet it was never an issue to bring peanut stuff to school and I never knew anyone that had a reaction during school time.

I don't know, just seems like sometimes things get out of hand nowadays.

I have no idea. That's just the way her school is. The kinds of snacks the kids get are fresh fruits and vegetables. I can't imagine parents having a problem with it, even if they don't want the kids to eat school lunch.

Longtime allergy sufferer here. It's rare that an allergy to foods such as fruits and vegetables is going to have a catastrophic effect the way a peanut allergy is likely to. You'll usually get hives or something similarly minor. A peanut allergy can easily kill you. Therein lies the difference and the reason for the careful treatment of nut allergies in school these days.

My husband is deathly allergic to shrimp because of the iodine. So I don't even eat shrimp in the house for fear that washing the plate/utensils could contaminate the dishes he'll be using.
