Question: What are good foods for me to send to school for my child's lunch?
You want to make sure that you are sending foods to school that are healthy, but do not need to be heated at school as students will not be able to warm their food at school.
You will want to speak with your child to determine if the amount of food that is packed for lunch is a “just right” amount so that food is not wasted, and your child will be feel full and ready to learn. Packing healthy snacks for recess as well as sending water in a water bottle works well for morning recess.
For lunch you will want to send a sandwich (nut products are not permitted on the school premises), water or a healthy juice. Ask your child what they want for lunch, and involve them in the process of packing lunch for school so that they take an interest of what they are eating at school, and can take ownership for making choices with you.
